One in five people in theUnited Statesare affected by metabolic syndrome, which becomes increasing prevalent as you age. Metabolic syndrome is a cluster of conditions, those affected experience: increased blood pressure, high blood sugar level, excess body fat around the waist and/or abnormal cholesterol levels. All of these conditions can increase the risk of heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. Having just one of these conditions doesn’t necessarily mean you have metabolic syndrome. However, any of these conditions increase your risk of serious disease.  If more than one of these conditions occur in combination, your risk is even greater of developing cardiovascular disease and diabetes.  Some studies have estimated 25% of the U.S.population have, or will have metabolic syndrome. Risk factors contributing to metabolic syndrome are stress, obesity, sedentary lifestyle, aging, diabetes mellitus, coronary heart disease, lipodystrophy, psychiatric illness and rheumatic diseases.  If you have metabolic syndrome or any of the components of metabolic syndrome, simple lifestyle changes can delay or even prevent the development of serious health problems.
