February 5, 2013 aboutbloodpressure Heart diseases

Metabolic syndrome (MetS) is a cluster of symptoms that are related to obesity, a condition which is in and of itself a health epidemic, and one which is a risk factor for other degenerative and chronic health problems such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and stroke.  Metabolic syndrome is a growing concern in the US as its prevalence has been noted even in children and teens.


Metabolic syndrome usually has symptoms that a number of chronic diseases share. You may already be suffering from metabolic syndrome if you have:

a troublesome waistline, with a body mass index (BMI) of 25-29.9 (overweight) or 30 and above (obese)

  • hypertension
  • insulin resistance or high fasting blood sugar
  • high total serum triglycerides and low HDL cholesterol


Apart from genetic predisposition to obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease, metabolic syndrome could develop due to the following factors:

  • aging
  • smoking
  • hormonal imbalance/changes
  • stress
  • sedentary lifestyle
  • lack of sleep and poor sleep quality
  • poor diet
