Metabolic syndrome is a set of risk factors that includes: abdominal obesity, a decreased ability to process glucose (increased blood glucose and/or insulin resistance), dyslipidemia, and hypertension. Patients who have this syndrome have been shown to be at an increased risk of developing cardiovascular disease and/or type 2 diabetes. Metabolic syndrome is a common condition that goes by many names (dysmetabolic syndrome, syndrome X, insulin resistance syndrome, obesity syndrome, and Reaven’s syndrome). Most persions identified as having this syndrome have been educated about the importance of checking their lipid levels, watching for signs of diabetes, having their blood pressure monitored, and exercising – but there has been little to tie all of these factors together except pursuit of a "healthier lifestyle."

The first line treatment is change of lifestyle (i.e., caloric restriction and physical activity). However, drug treatment is frequently required. Generally, the individual disorders that comprise the metabolic syndrome are treated separately. Diuretics and ACE inhibitors may be used to treat hypertension. Cholesterol drugs may be used to lower LDL cholesterol and triglyceride levels, if they are elevated, and to raise HDL levels if they are low. Use of drugs that decrease insulin resistance, e.g., metformin and thiazolidinediones, is controversial; this treatment is not approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

A 2003 study indicated that cardiovascular exercise was therapeutic in approximately 31% of cases. The most probable benefit was to triglyceride levels, with 43% showing improvement; but fasting plasma glucose and insulin resistance of 91% of test subjects did not improve.[17] Many other studies have supported the value of increased physical activity and restricted caloric intake (exercise and diet) to treat metabolic syndrome.

Is Metabolic Syndrome another name for diabetes?

What is Metabolic Syndrome? Must you be a diabetic to have Metabolic syndrome? What drugs can you take for Metabolic syndrome? What tests can diagnose Metabolic Syndrome? Is diet important if you have Metabolic Syndrome? Is Metabolic Syndrome the same as being a diabetic?

No, you can be a diabetic and not have metabolic syndrome. On the other hand, diabetes is present in those who have metabolic syndrome. The American Heart Association defines metabolic syndrome as a group of metabolic risk factors in one person. They include:

* Abdominal obesity (excessive fat tissue in and around the abdomen)
* Atherogenic dyslipidemia (blood fat disorders — high triglycerides, low HDL cholesterol and high LDL cholesterol — that foster plaque buildups in artery walls)
* Elevated blood pressure
* Insulin resistance or glucose intolerance (the body can’t properly use insulin or blood sugar)
* Prothrombotic state (e.g., high fibrinogen or plasminogen activator inhibitor–1 in the blood)
* Proinflammatory state (e.g., elevated C-reactive protein in the blood)  (+ info)

What is the chemical or ingredient found in diet sodas that causes metabolic syndrome?

Aspartame is the chemical in the diet sodas that causes metabolic syndrome

Researchers have found a correlation between drinking diet soda and metabolic syndrome — the collection of risk factors for cardiovascular disease and diabetes that include abdominal obesity, high cholesterol and blood glucose levels, and elevated blood pressure.

The scientists gathered dietary information on more than 9,500 men and women ages 45 to 64 and tracked their health for nine years.

the risk of developing metabolic syndrome was 34 percent higher among those who drank one can of diet soda a day compared with those who drank none.

Why do antipsychotics cause metabolic syndrome?

People who suffer frpm psychotic illnesses have medicines which conrol their psychosis but put on varying amounts of weight. What is the cause fo this?

Are you asking why drugs have side effects? Or why anti-psychotics have THAT particular side effect?

I dont have a highly technical answer as to *why* that side effect exists for those types of medications. Even the CPS doesn't go into that much detail, usually.

All drugs have side effects of some type. Bodies are complex structures, and drugs/medications function at the smallest of cellular levels. Anything you put into your body is bound to have some effect, will cause a change in some way.

Rule of thumb - if the side effect is causing more problems than the desired effect is "fixing", it's time to try something else.  (+ info)

What caused fatty liver, I do not drink? what is metabolic syndrome?

Im not over weight, but have been fighting thyroid cancer and has had many meds, since Oct.of 09
Can you help shed some light?

KATNHAT - There are many causes of fatty liver besides alcohol. According to The Mayo Clinic, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease can take several forms. In nonalcoholic fatty liver, it's not normal for fat to build up in your liver, but it won't necessarily hurt you. At its simplest form, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease can cause excess liver fat, but no complications. This condition is thought to be very common. In a small number of people with fatty liver, the fat causes inflammation in the liver. This can impair the liver's ability to function and lead to complications. Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease-may have associated cirrhosis. Liver inflammation leads to scarring of the liver tissue. With time, scarring can become so severe that the liver no longer functions adequately (liver failure).

In your history some of the many meds you have taken may also be the cause of fatty changes in the liver.

Metabolic syndrome is a cluster of conditions — increased blood pressure, elevated insulin levels, excess body fat around the waist or abnormal cholesterol levels — that occur together, increasing your risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes. Having just one of these conditions isn't diagnosed as metabolic syndrome, but it does contribute to your risk of serious disease. If more than one of these conditions occur in combination, your risk is even greater. If you have metabolic syndrome or any of the components of metabolic syndrome, aggressive lifestyle changes can delay or even prevent the development of serious health problems.  (+ info)
