Metabolic Syndrome and Type 2 Diabetes

Metabolic Syndrome is a cluster of interconnected risk factors that significantly increase the likelihood of developing Type 2 Diabetes. These risk factors include obesity, particularly abdominal obesity, high blood pressure, elevated blood sugar levels, and abnormal lipid profiles with high triglycerides and low HDL cholesterol. People with Metabolic Syndrome are at a higher risk of insulin resistance, a hallmark of Type 2 Diabetes, where the body's cells do not efficiently use insulin to regulate blood sugar. Type 2 Diabetes typically requires lifestyle changes, including dietary modifications, increased physical activity, and, in some cases, medications like insulin or oral antidiabetic drugs for blood sugar control. Both conditions are closely linked to cardiovascular risks, such as heart disease and stroke, making early detection and intervention critical in managing metabolic health and reducing the risk of Type 2 Diabetes.
