Metabolic syndrome describes the presence of several metabolic conditions which individually or collectively increase your risk for potentially life limiting/threatening conditions such as:
- Insulin resistance identified as elevated glucose
- Abdominal obesity
- High blood triglycerides (hyperlipidemia)
- Low high density lipoproteins (HDL)
- High blood pressure
Any of these conditions individually increase your risk for cardiovascular disease and together amplify that risk.
