Journal of Metabolic Syndrome is one of the journals which publish articles related to Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus, Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus, Gestational Diabetes, Cardio Vascular Research, Endocrinology, Diabetes Therapy, Diabetic Drugs, and Genetics of Diabetes etc. Metabolic syndrome is a name for a group of risk factors that occur together and increase the risk for coronary artery disease, stroke, and type 2 diabetes. Metabolic syndrome is a collection of disorders that occur together and increase your risk of developing type 2 diabetes or cardiovascular disease (stroke or heart disease). The causes of metabolic syndrome are complex and not well understood, but there is thought to be a genetic link. Being overweight or obese and physically inactive adds to your risk. Metabolic syndrome is sometimes called syndrome X or insulin-resistance syndrome.
As we get older, we tend to become less active and may gain excess weight. This weight is generally stored around the abdomen, which can lead to the body becoming resistant to the hormone insulin. This means that insulin in the body is less effective, especially in the muscles and liver.
