Sex Fix Few Physicians Discuss
Metabolic syndrome is a condition that raises the risk of multiple disease and death rates from heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. You only need 3 out of the following criteria to have this syndrome.
- Waist over 35 inches, or over 31 inches in an Asian
- Triglycerides greater than 150
- Fasting Blood sugar of over 100
- Blood pressure of over 130/85
- HDL cholesterol of greater than 150
- (Apolipoprotein B under 90 is abnormal as well but most don't use this as part of standard criteria)
- And now at Women's Health Practice we add sexual dysfunction.
