Recognizing the Symptoms of Metabolic Syndrome

Metabolic syndrome is a complex condition characterized by a cluster of symptoms that often coexist and contribute to an increased risk of cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, and other health complications. Understanding and identifying these symptoms is crucial for early detection and intervention. Here are some common symptoms associated with metabolic syndrome:

Abdominal obesity

Excess weight around the waistline, commonly called abdominal obesity or central adiposity, is a key indicator of metabolic syndrome. In men, a waist circumference greater than 40 inches (102 cm), and in women, greater than 35 inches (88 cm), may be indicative of increased health risks.

Elevated blood pressure

High blood pressure, or hypertension, is another hallmark of metabolic syndrome. Blood pressure levels equal to or exceeding 130/85 mmHg are typically associated with this condition. Hypertension strains the cardiovascular system and increases the risk of heart disease and stroke.


Metabolic syndrome often presents with abnormal lipid levels in the blood. This includes elevated triglycerides (≥150 mg/dL or 1.7 mmol/L) and reduced levels of high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol (men: <40 mg/dL or 1.0 mmol/L; women: <50 mg/dL or 1.3 mmol/L).

Impaired glucose metabolism

Individuals with metabolic syndrome commonly experience insulin resistance and impaired glucose metabolism, leading to elevated blood sugar levels. Fasting glucose levels equal to or higher than 100 mg/dL (5.6 mmol/L) are typically associated with this condition.

Elevated inflammatory markers

Chronic low-grade inflammation is often present in metabolic syndrome. Elevated levels of inflammatory markers, such as C-reactive protein (CRP), may indicate an increased risk of developing cardiovascular disease.

Prothrombotic state

Metabolic syndrome can contribute to a prothrombotic state, increasing the likelihood of blood clot formation. This raises the risk of cardiovascular events, such as heart attacks and strokes.

It's important to note that the presence of one or a few of these symptoms do not definitively diagnose metabolic syndrome, but if you have a combination of several of these symptoms, you may have the condition, along with an array of associated health symptoms. Early detection and intervention can help prevent or manage metabolic syndrome effectively, reducing the risk of related complications. If you have metabolic syndrome, we encourage you to consult our compassionate team at Progressive Wellness in New Jersey for a comprehensive assessment and experience enhanced wellness with a custom-tailored treatment plan.
