Metabolic factors Increase Risk. We Can Help Reduce Them.

Metabolic Syndrome is a group of metabolic factors that increase a person’s risk of heart disease, diabetes and stroke. Some factors include high blood pressure, high glucose and abdominal obesity. People can reduce their risk of metabolic syndrome by reducing weight, eating a healthy diet and increasing physical activity. If lifestyle changes alone don’t improve metabolic syndrome, doctors may prescribe medications to control high blood pressure, cholesterol and other symptoms.
