What is Metabolism? Why Is It Important?

Metabolism is a biochemical process in which your body converts food into energy.Metabolic syndrome is a cluster of factors that increase your risk of cardiovascular disease and other health problems such as diabetes and stroke.
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.

Prevent and lower your risk of metabolic syndrome by making healthy choices.Find out your risk for metabolic syndrome using our interactive "METABOLIC SYNDROME CALCULATOR"
