A cluster of conditions that raise the chance of developing heart disease, stroke, or diabetes.
Excessive blood pressure, high blood sugar, increased body fat around the waist, and abnormal cholesterol levels are all symptoms of metabolic syndrome. The condition raises a person's chance of having a heart attack or a stroke.
Most metabolic syndrome-related illnesses have no symptoms other than a big waist circumference. Weight loss, exercise, a nutritious diet, and quitting smoking can all help. Medication may be prescribed as well.
