Metabolic Syndrome

Metabolic syndrome is a combination of risk factors which includes high blood pressure, hyperglycemia, abnormal cholesterol levels and excess body fat around the waist that occur together, doubling your risk of heart disease, stroke, and diabetes.  This condition is also known by other names including Syndrome X, insulin resistance syndrome, and dysmetabolic syndrome. Insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome and prediabetes have overlapping aspects and are closely linked to one another. Most of the disorders associated with metabolic syndrome have no symptoms, although it is closely linked to insulin resistance, overweight or obesity and inactivity. Metabolic syndrome can be prevented or reversed by adopting few number of lifestyle changes, including losing weight, regular exercise, healthy diet, stopping smoking, cutting down on alcohol. Elevated liver enzymes, an indicator of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, may comprise an additional component of the metabolic syndrome and may serve as a surrogate marker for type 2 diabetes.
