Metabolic Syndrome Test - More Information
This metabolic syndrome test checks blood markers - the glucose test and the lipid panel - that are typically checked as part of a larger metabolic syndrome evaluation. Metabolic syndrome represents a basket of risk factors that, when present, have been identified as increasing one's risk for conditions such as diabetes, heart disease and stroke.
Risk factors for having metabolic syndrome include having a large waistline, a high triglyceride level, a low HDL cholesterol level, high blood pressure and a high fasting blood glucose level. To be diagnosed with metabolic syndrome, one must have at least three of these risk factors. Often, people with metabolic syndrome also have insulin resistance which is sometimes looked for using blood insulin levels.
To get a metabolic syndrome test panel near you, order online and get your blood drawn at the Quest Diagnostics lab that you selected. Once your metabolic syndrome lab report is ready, it will be available for download. As can be seen on the sample metabolic syndrome test panel lab report, the individual metabolic syndrome lab markers will be reported as numerical values and can be compared against the reference ranges provided by the lab. For best results, an overnight fast (8-12 hours) is recommended before getting tested for this metabolic syndrome screening panel.
