Description

Metabolic Syndrome is not a disease in itself. It is a group of risk factors which may raise the risk of Diabetes, Cardiovascular Diseases and Stroke. A person is said to be suffering from Metabolic Syndrome when any of the following three or more conditions develop :

Abdominal Fat : Waist Size > 40 inches / 35 inches ( Men / Women )
High Blood Pressure : BP > 135/85 mm Hg
High Triglycerides : Triglycerides > 150 mm/dL
Low HDL Cholesterol < 40 / 50 mg/dL ( Men / Women )
High Blood Sugar : Fasting Glucose level > 100 mg/dL

To know more about this disease, we have to know about Metabolism first and how it works.

What is Metabolism ?
There are a number of chemical reactions that take place in the human body. These reactions involve the break down of Carbohydrates, Fats and Proteins. These reactions are regulated by Enzymes. The Enzymes break down food and produce energy, which is supplied to the Cells. These cells use this energy as a fuel. It may be used instantly or stored for future use. The energy is stored in the Liver, Muscles, Tissues and the Body fat. However, some genetic mutations in these enzymes may results in the failure of these reactions. This failure gives rise to Metabolic Syndrome.

Causes of Metabolic Syndrome
Insuline Resistance : Insuline is a hormone produced by the Pancreas. It helps the glucose present in the blood, in entering the cells. In Insulin resistance the body is unable to use the Insulin properly. This increases the level of glucose in the blood. The Pancreas work hard and try to cope with the growing demand of Insulin. Ultimately, it gives rise to the condition called Diabetes. Insulin resistance is a commonly seen in people with excessive belly fat.
