CVD as aRisk factor for Metabolic syndrome
#CVD #Endocrinology #harrison #medicine #metabolicsyndrome
Individuals with the metabolic syn- drome are twice as likely to die of CVD as those who do not, and their risk of an acute myocardial infarction or stroke is threefold higher. The approximate prevalence of the metabolic syndrome among patients with coronary heart disease (CHD) is 60%, with a prevalence of ~35% among patients with premature coronary artery disease (≤age 45) and a particularly high prevalence among women. With appropriate cardiac rehabilitation and changes in lifestyle (e.g., nutrition, physical activity, weight reduction, and—in some cases—pharmacologic therapy), the prevalence of the syndrome can be reduced.
