Metablic Syndrome

Metabolic syndrome, Syndrome X, or Dysmetabolic Syndrome is a combination of medical disorders that, when occurring together, increase the risk of developing cardiovascular disease and diabetes. The cluster of conditions that are part of metabolic syndrome include: — increased blood
pressure, a high blood sugar level, excess body fat around the waist or abnormal cholesterol levels. Some studies have shown the prevalence in the USA to be an estimated 1/3 of the population and prevalence increases with age. Find out if you might have metabolic syndrome using this W8MD tool!
