Metabolic Syndrome

Metabolic syndrome is a clustering of abnormalities that includes obesity, hyperglycemia, high blood pressure, and atherogenic dyslipidemia. Advances in scientific knowledge, the increasing prevalence of obesity, and the disorder's role in contributing to cardiovascular disease and diabetes are fueling interest in metabolic syndrome.
What is Metabolic Syndrome?

Metabolic syndrome is a condition characterized by the presence diabetes, obesity and high blood pressure. These conditions increase the risk of cardiovascular illnesses such as stroke and heart disease. Individually, diabetes, high blood pressure and obesity can lead to vascular damage, but a combination of these illnesses is particularly dangerous.
