Metabolic Syndrome is a combination of risk factors that are associated with chronic health conditions and issues related to aging. Some of these include:
Type 2 Diabetes
Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome...the list goes on.
The scary fact is that 1 in 3 adults meet the criteria for Metabolic Syndrome and problems in adolescents are rising very rapidly. Here are 5 markers that measure this condition. If you have 3 out of five, you are at high risk.
Elevated Waist Circumference
> 40 inches in Men
> 35 inches in Women
>150 mg or taking medication
<40 mg in Men
<50 mg in Women
Elevated Blood Pressure
>130 systolic and >85 diastolic or taking medication
Elevated Fasting Blood Sugar
>100 or taking medication
There is good news if you or someone you know happens to be at high risk. Being diagnosed with Metabolic Syndrome can and should be used as a crossroads for intervention, before the diagnosis becomes something more serious and irreversible.
