Diabetes & Obesity

Metabolic syndrome is a combination of risk factors — abdominal obesity, hypertension, high blood sugar levels, insulinresistance (IR), abnormal cholesterol levels, hyperlipidemia and inflammatory states — that increase the risk of heartdisease, stroke, diabetes type 2, fatty liver disease and PCOS (in young women). Having any of these conditions increase the risk of serious disease. If more than one of these conditions occur in combination, the risk is even greater.
