Metabolic Syndrome

Metabolic syndrome is not a single disease, but a group of conditions that occur together, increasing your risk of heart disease, stroke, and type 2 diabetes. These conditions include:

  • High blood pressure

  • High blood sugar

  • High triglycerides

  • Low HDL cholesterol

  • Abdominal obesity

Metabolic syndrome is diagnosed when you have three or more of these conditions.

The exact cause of metabolic syndrome is unknown, but it is believed to be caused by a combination of genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors. These factors include:

  • Being overweight or obese

  • Not getting enough exercise

  • Eating a diet high in processed foods and sugary drinks

  • Having a family history of metabolic syndrome

There is no cure for metabolic syndrome, but there are steps you can take to reduce your risk of developing it or to manage the conditions if you already have it. These steps include:

  • Losing weight

  • Eating a healthy diet

  • Exercising regularly

  • Managing your blood sugar

  • Managing your blood pressure

  • Managing your cholesterol

If you have metabolic syndrome, it is important to work with your doctor to manage your conditions and reduce your risk of developing serious health problems.
