Metabolic Syndrome

Metabolic syndrome is a group of conditions that, when occurring together, increase your risk of a stroke, heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, and other chronic diseases.

Examples of conditions that make up metabolic syndrome include:
• High blood pressure
• Excess body weight around your weight
• High cholesterol levels
• High blood sugar

These medical issues are often reversible by adopting healthy habits, including altering your diet and exercise regimens.

Things that typically increase the risk of developing metabolic syndrome, and therefore chronic diseases and their complications, include:
• Having a larger waist circumference
• Overweight
• Obesity
• Physical inactivity
• Poor dietary choices
• Insulin resistance
• Older age
• Gestational diabetes (diabetes during pregnancy)
• Family history of Type 2 diabetes
• Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease
• Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
• Sleep apnea

A main sign of metabolic syndrome is carrying excess weight around the midsection. However, most disorders linked to metabolic syndrome have no obvious symptoms. If you develop diabetes, you might experience increased urination, excessive thirst, blurred vision, or fatigue.
