Cardiometabolic Syndrome

What is cardiometabolic syndrome?

Cardiometabolic syndrome (CMS) is a metabolic disorder that occurs when insulin and blood sugar are not properly regulated along with associated high cholesterol, high blood pressure and fat deposited in the abdominal area (visceral fat). In combination, these factors lead to an increase in the risk for cardiovascular events such as heart attack and stroke.

Those who have CMS are three times more likely to have heart attacks and strokes and twice as likely to die from cardiovascular events as compared to those who do not have CMS. It is estimated that one-quarter of adults worldwide can be categorized as having CMS.
