What is metabolic syndrome?

Doctors call a set of signs and symptoms that are present in a person and in general, the possibility of fat deposition in the walls of arteries and the development of serious diseases and disorders of the cardiovascular system in a person called metabolic syndrome or X syndrome. It is important to know that cardiovascular problems are only part of the consequences of metabolic syndrome.

 

In people with X syndrome, strokes leading to death and disability and peripheral arterial disease and the risk of developing type 2 diabetes are very high.

Women with this syndrome are more likely to develop polycystic ovary syndrome and infertility problems.

 

Complications of metabolic syndrome

You can read some of the accompaniments of this syndrome below:

  • Serious cardiovascular problems
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Dementia
  • Non-alcoholic fatty liver
  • Cancer

 

Who is more likely to develop metabolic syndrome?

Twenty to twenty-five percent of adults worldwide have metabolic syndrome

Doctors believe that insulin resistance and abdominal or central obesity are predisposing factors for this syndrome.

Abdominal obesity is strongly associated with the risk of this syndrome

 

What is insulin resistance?

The cells of the body need blood sugar for their energy. In order for sugar to enter the cell through the bloodstream, the cell must recognize insulin.

So the cells are low in energy and the person is tired and hungry and the blood sugar is very high. High blood sugar is very dangerous for a long time and causes very catastrophic inflammatory changes in the arterial wall which is the main basis of all complications of type 2 diabetes such as blindness and Loss of kidneys and amputation.

In people with insulin resistance, obesity and inactivity will all together form X syndrome.

 

Causes of metabolic syndrome

In general, physicians consider the following factors to be involved and effective in the development of metabolic syndrome:

  • Genetics
  • Insulin resistance
  • Obesity and being overweight
  • Physical immobility

 

Recognize the signs and symptoms of metabolic syndrome

  • Fatigue
  • Obesity, especially obesity around the abdomen
  • Abundant thirst
  • Frequent hunger
  • Over drinking and over urinary !
  • Darkening of the skin of the body folds such as the armpit skin, the skin on the back of the neck and under the breasts and the groin
  • Infertility
  • Hirsutism or dark, thick hair under the chin and on both sides of the face and in the middle of the chest and abdomen in women
  • Androgenic pattern hair loss in women
  • Acne
  • greasy skin

 

Diagnosis of metabolic syndrome

There must be at least three out of five of the following symptoms to be diagnosed with X syndrome:

 

  • Existence of abdominal obesity or central obesity:

Abdominal circumference in men more than forty inches or more than one hundred and two centimeters

Abdominal circumference in women more than thirty-five inches by more than eighty-eight centimeters

 

  • High blood pressure:

Systolic pressure equal to or above one hundred and thirty-five millimeters of mercury

Diastolic pressure equal to or above eighty-five millimeters of mercury

Or receiving antihypertensive medication

 

  • Fasting blood sugar equal to or greater than ١١٠ mg / dL

 

  • Low blood HDL:

Men less than forty milligrams per deciliter of blood.

Women less than fifty milligrams per deciliter of blood.

 

  • Fasting blood triglyceride equal to or more than one hundred and fifty milligrams per deciliter of blood

 

What can we do to treat metabolic syndrome?

  • Lose weight
  • Exercise, physical activity reduces insulin resistance
  • Improve your diet
  • Measure your weight regularly
  • Check your blood sugar, blood pressure and blood fats on time
  • Treat high blood pressure, high blood sugar and disproportionate blood lipids and keep track of their levels.
  • Take your medications on time to control your blood pressure, blood sugar and blood fats.
