Cardiometabolic Syndrome Treatment in Saint Petersburg, FL
Cardiometabolic syndrome refers to a group of risk factors that raise your chance of developing a vascular disease (like heart disease) or type 2 diabetes .
According to the Indian Journal of Pharmacology, adults with cardiometabolic syndrome (also called syndrome X or insulin resistance syndrome) are twice as likely to die from coronary heart disease and three times as likely to have a heart attack or stroke.
Men and women who have three of the following five disorders significantly raise their risk for cardiometabolic syndrome. These include:
- High blood pressure
- High blood sugar
- High triglycerides (part of your cholesterol )
- Low HDL cholesterol levels
- Abdominal obesity (excess fat around the belly area)
Just having one of these conditions can be very problematic, but when combined as a group, the health risk dramatically increases.
