ABSTRACT
Metabolic syndrome serves as a simple and reliable criterion for identifying patients at high risk for diabetes and coronary heart disease. This is more important with the fact when all the risk factors are ruled out. Several independent physiological processes which don’t fall in the category of difference high risk group which includes insulin resistance, central obesity, dyslipidemia,. Other non-classic risk factors, such as abnormal LDL low-density lipoprotein-cholesterol and C-reactive protein levels, are highly correlated with the coronary artery disease. Use of the metabolic syndrome criteria for assessment is comparable with other risk-scoring systems in accurately predicting cardiovascular disease risk and is simpler to implement in the clinic. Further research is needed to define the etiology of the metabolic syndrome.
