Metabolic syndrome is a cluster of conditions, increased blood pressure, a high blood sugar level, excess body fat around the waist and abnormal cholesterol levels that occur together, increasing your risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes.
It has been established that patients diagnosed with metabolic syndrome (MS) have significantly greater incidence of developing type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and cardiovascular disease (CVD). Indeed, diabetes is a nationwide epidemic in the United States affecting nearly 26 million Americans, with 90-95% of these cases being T2DM. The monetary costs for diabetes alone accounts for an estimated 245 billion dollars in the United States annually. CVD is the primary cause of death in people with T2DM and ranks number one in fatalities worldwide. Similar to increased incidences of individuals with T2DM, diagnosis of people with MS is steadily rising.
