WHY knowing WHAT metabolic syndrome is could

SAVE your life and dollars.

What is Metabolic Syndrome?

A group of risk factors for heart disease, diabetes, and stroke. It includes abdominal obesity, high blood pressure, high blood glucose levels, and low levels of high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol. The metabolic syndrome is sometimes called the insulin resistance syndrome.

Signs and symptoms of Metabolic Syndrome

To establish whether you are suffering from metabolic syndrome use the below, Education Program Adult Treatment Panel (ATP III), as a guideline. The presence of 3 out of 5 of the following measurements is necessary to identify the syndrome:

1. Waist measurement Men: Greater than 102 cms Women: Greater than 88 cms

2. Blood pressure greater than or equal to 130/85

3. Triglyceride levels greater than or equal to 1.7 mmol/l

4. Glucose level: greater than or equal to 6 mmol/l

5. HDL cholesterol

Men: less than or equal to 1.0 mmol
Women: less than or equal to 1.3 mmol/l

Consequences of metabolic syndrome

  1. Life long medication that serve to suppress the symptom rather than the cause of disease. In the end of it all, it gives you various side effects in forms of other complications as a bonus or parting gift.
  2. Bypass or angioplasty if you are lucky enough to be alive from an initial heart attack. The operation costs a bomb so make sure to have enough insurance coverage. (go to your local hospital to check out the price)
  3. Walking aid or a wheelchair (for added comfort?) if you are unlucky enough to get plaques in your brain vessels and got a stroke.
  4. Please be patient while waiting for dialysis and amputation if you are a diabetic and does nothing about it other than religiously taking your medication.
  5. You can never fit into those slick designer wear and look good.
  6. Who jabs himself everyday but is not a drug addict? An insulin-dependant diabetic!
  7. and the list goes on and on……
