A quarter of the world’s adults have metabolic syndrome and are twice as likely to die from, and three times as likely to have a heart attack or stroke compared with people without the syndrome. People with metabolic syndrome have a five-fold greater risk of developing type 2 diabetes and up to 80% of the 200 million people with diabetes globally will die of cardiovascular disease. Yet ,the syndrome is poorly recognized. Learn how to recognize, reverse, and prevent metabolic syndrome.

Biometric Screening and Body Composition Analysis; What do the Numbers Mean? (55 minutes)

Biometric screenings provide important information on current and potential health problems. When combined with a health risk assessment by a qualified health professional, individuals have reliable information about their status or risk for metabolic syndrome and chronic preventable diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, and hypertension. The numbers provide important baseline data to determine health interventions and shape the direction of wellness programs. Body composition analysis is extremely useful for monitoring weight gain or loss, muscle and fat percentages, basal metabolic rate, and unhealthy visceral fat assessment.
