Metabolic syndrome increases risk for CVD in adults, all-cause mortality in women
May 27, 2015

Metabolic syndrome, particularly the presence of diabetes and hypertension, is associated with high risk for cardiovascular death in both men and women and a significantly increased all-cause mortality risk in women, according to research in The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism.

In a longitudinal, observational, retrospective study of young Korean adults, researchers attributed the increased risk to the presence of diabetes or hypertension - components of metabolic syndrome - and suggested that lifestyle changes can potentially reduce that risk.
