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!
