Metabolic syndrome consists of risk factors that can raise your risk for heart disease, stroke, early cognitive decline, and diabetes.
The main risk factors associated with metabolic syndrome include abdominal obesity, also known as an “apple shaped body”; elevated triglyceride levels on your cholesterol tests; low “good” HDL cholesterol levels; elevated fasting blood sugar levels; and high blood pressure.
Metabolic syndrome can be caused by a number of influences, from lifestyle to hormone abnormalities and chemicals in the environment.
At Forum Health Bloomingdale, we treat each person as an individual, with intensive advanced testing, creating a customized plan that puts you on the right track to a long, healthy life.
