Men with metabolic syndrome are twice as likely to die from coronary heart disease

Men with metabolic syndrome are twice as likely to die from coronary heart diseaseMen with metabolic syndrome are twice as likely to die from coronary heart disease Men with metabolic syndrome are twice as likely to die from coronary heart disease, reported in issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association. Metabolic syndrome (MS) is a recognized factor of cardiovascular risk, but the mechanisms of its effects on cardiovascular and total mortality is still unclear, noted Dr. Hanna-Maaria Lakka and her colleagues from Louisiana state University (Baton Rouge). For more than 10 years, scientists have observed 1209 Finnish middle-aged men. The diagnosis of MS was exhibited in accordance with the criteria of the program NCEP (National Cholesterol Education Program) and who. In the who criteria, a higher critical level of blood pressure (BP) and lower v cholesterol high density lipoprotein (HDL). MS prevalence ranged from 8.8% 14.2%, depending on the criteria of MS, as well as criteria for abdominal obesity. Regardless of the chosen criteria, men with MS had at least 2.9 times higher risk of death from coronary heart disease than participants without him. When using the who criteria, the presence of MS was associated with increased risk of cardiovascular and total mortality (2.6-3.0 and 1.9-2.1 times, respectively). Criteria NCEP had less predictive value. Link MS and mortality occurred even in the initial absence of cardiovascular disease or diabetes. "As far as we know, this is the first prospective population-based cohort study linking MS (diagnosed according to current criteria) with total and cardiovascular mortality," say the authors. - "Early detection, treatment and prevention of MS is one of the leading tasks of doctors and health managers. This is especially true now, when the problem of obesity and sedentary lifestyle has acquired the character of an epidemic". Source: solvay-pharma.ru.
