Metabolic syndrome is a condition rather than a disease; it clusters many factors such as hypertension, insulin resistance, abdominal obesity, and hyperlipidemia. All of them have in common that your overall risk of dying because of cardiovascular disease will increase. Also, metabolic syndrome links to several other complications that threaten life, such as fatty liver disease, or cancer.


What is the root of the problem? Well, worldwide, over the years, people are increasing their consumption of fast and fatty food, plus they are not doing enough exercise—this source for hormone dysregulations in the body, which is called insulin resistance.


Insulin resistance is the heart of all the metabolic syndrome problems and the ones that come after it. These problems include people acquiring prediabetes or diabetes, and because of the chronic swelling in their tissues, their risk is many times higher for having multiples diseases.


Luckily, it is possible to avoid this situation. However, it requires a great endeavor from the person for changing its current lifestyle, which roots the problem. Also, many medications are available for treating this condition.


For example, physical activity would always help decrease the impact of metabolic syndrome. Also, it helps to reduce the blood glucose level.


The recommendation is to walk at a brisk pace for at least 150 minutes a week or more. This time walking would ensure blood flow to the muscles.


What is most important is an early diagnosis of it. Prevention is possible, and it only requires simple assessments in the office by a doctor. And most of the time, a few exams, such a fasting glucose level, and glucose tolerance, among others.


The estimation is that a third of the United States population carries a metabolic syndrome. What is more, to worry is that most of them are unaware of that situation. This grounds for a dangerous situation for a significant proportion of this population, for example.


Importantly, this tool is a metabolic syndrome symptoms checker. It would help to determine how likely it is for someone to carry this condition; it is free and would only take a few minutes.
