Metabolic syndrome risk factors include -
  • High blood pressure (hypertension)
  • Abdominal obesity
  • High triglyceride levels
  • Low HDL (High-Density Lipoprotein) cholesterol level
  • High fasting blood sugar.
Having one of these factors does not necessarily mean that you have metabolic syndrome. However more than one of these factors increases your risk for heart disease, diabetes and stroke.
