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.
