The follow-up examinations also included information on nutrition (food frequency questionnaires) and physical activity ("metabolic
equivalent index"), as well as a panel of testing that allows a designation of metabolic
syndrome at both time points.
According to the American Heart Association, 47 million Americans have metabolic
syndrome, although many may not know it.
The researchers said people had metabolic
syndrome if they had at least three of the following five conditions:
The prevalence of metabolic
syndrome in different populations has been investigated.
Cordes's report was one of several at the meeting sponsored by the European Psychiatric Association that examined different facets of the complex links that tie schizophrenia to metabolic
syndrome, an association that already had lots of evidence, including a recent meta-analysis (Schizophr Bull.
Results: The mean malondialdehyde level was significantly higher in overweight and obese subjects with metabolic
syndrome than control groups (Pless than 0.
ATP III identified 6 components of the metabolic
The letters of this word can be used to describe the components of the metabolic
syndrome is rising worldwide and attributed to increased obesity and inactive lifestyle.
sup] Also, clustering of cardio-metabolic
risk factors (and thus, the metabolic
syndrome) is becoming more common.
The underlying causes of metabolic
syndrome are obesity and insulin resistance (Grundy et al.
In a new study, researchers found that cardio metabolic
risk in obese adolescents may be predicted by typical sleep patterns, DECCAN Chronicle reported.
In studies of patient populations controlled for differences in dietary content alone, independent of weight loss or exercise changes, diets with high glycemic index foods, low whole grain and fiber content, and low fruit and vegetable content are associated with an increased incidence of metabolic
syndrome (strength of recommendation [SOR]: B, multiple large cohort studies).
New research reveals that metabolic
syndrome-risk factors that can lead to heart disease and/or stroke-is common in liver transplant recipients, with rates highest at one year following the procedure.
