Metabolic Syndrome is one of the most significant cardiac risk factors found in Americans. Its profle is

a low HDL number (below 40 for men and 50 for women);
triglycerides over 150;
waist size 35 inches and above for women and 40 inches and above for men;
blood pressure 130/85 or greater;
fasting glucose of 100 or greater,

Each of the above is a cardiac risk factor, but in combination they are a lethal threat to heart health. The fact that Metabolic Syndrome risk can be lowered by eating a diet rich in vegetables, fruit, whole grains and fish is great news.
