Metabolic Scoring Profile
Metabolic syndrome is a cluster of conditions that increase the risk of heart disease, stroke, and type 2 diabetes. These conditions include high blood pressure, high blood sugar, excess body fat around the waist, and abnormal cholesterol or triglyceride levels. Age and ethnicity may also mean greater risk. Having just one of these risk factors doesn’t mean you have metabolic syndrome, but it does mean you have a greater chance of developing a serious health condition. And, if you have multiple risk factors, your chances are even greater.
Metabolic syndrome is increasingly common in the United States; up to one-third of Americans have it. The good news is that a healthy lifestyle may help prevent metabolic syndrome. Some suggested healthy habits include:
- Being physically active for 30 minutes, most days of the week
- Eating a healthy diet rich in fruit and vegetables and low in saturated fat
- Maintaining a healthy weight
- Not smoking
The Riordan Clinic offers a Metabolic Scoring Profile to help you identify potential risk factors for developing metabolic syndrome, track progress over time, and ultimately reduce your risk. Our clinical team calculates your personal Metabolic Score based on various data, including lab analysis, lifestyle behaviors, biometrics, and family history information.
Identify your score. Track your progress. Reduce your risk.
