Metabolic SyndromeMetabolic syndrome, also known as Insulin resistance syndrome or Metabolic Syndrome X, is a group of conditions that take place collectively, increasing the risk of stroke, heart disease and diabetes.
The conditions that make up metabolic syndrome can be high blood sugar, excessive body fat around the mid-section, high cholesterol levels, insulin resistance and high blood pressure.
It is thought that metabolic syndrome is caused by genetics and varying environmental and lifestyle factors. While age, race and diabetes history are factors in developing metabolic syndrome, being overweight and physically inactive are thought to be the major contributors.
