Metabolic Syndrome consists of four important elevations which accelerate the development of heart disease:
- Elevation of weight
- Elevation of blood sugar
- Elevation of blood fats
- Elevation of blood pressure
Sleep apnea often comes along with metabolic syndrome. Studies now show sleep apnea may further accelerate the development of heart disease. Scientists are now focusing on the unique properties of the fat which surrounds the internal organs, called the visceral adipose organ. It seems the bigger this organ gets, the more troubles with the metabolic syndrome and the higher the risk.
