What is Metabolic Syndrome?

Metabolic syndrome is a cluster of conditions that can lead to Type 2 Diabetes and heart disease. The good news is that metabolic syndrome may be preventable or reversible by altering your lifestyle.

Are you at risk?

  • Do you have a waist circumference greater than 35 inches (for women) or 40 inches (for men)?
  • Is your HDL or “good” cholesterol deficient?
  • Do you have elevated triglycerides?
  • Do you have elevated blood pressure?
  • Is your fasting glucose level too high?

If you have 3 of the 5 markers you are at risk for metabolic syndrome.
