                             Metabolic Syndrome: Part 2-

Diagnoses of metabolic syndrome in the United States have been on the rise since the 1990’s.  Many people feel that the nation’s dependence on processed/carryout foods, and the sedentary lifestyle of many children and adults, is a factor.

There are five commonly measured criteria as risk factors for metabolic syndrome:

Abdominal obesity (waist circumference of 35 inches or more in women, and 40 inches or more in men) http://www.cincinnati.md/oh/cincinnati/con-article/656686/abdominal%20obesity/extra_pounds_a_deadly_risk_factor_for_black_women_study.htm

Elevated fasting triglycerides.

Low HDL cholesterol (greater than 50 mg. for women, and greater than 40 mg. in men. http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/cholesterol.html

High blood pressure

High fasting glucose http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/diabeticdiet.html

Regular visits with your physician will help you monitor your factors and develop a plan of action involving lifestyle changes (exercise, healthy eating, and regular adequate amounts of sleeping), medication to change the progression of the syndrome.

Positive changes can be made if you are diagnosed with metabolic syndrome.  Stay informed and fight for your best health!
