Metabolic syndrome, a disease of modern life, is a condition that develops with insulin resistance and is observed together with systemic factors such as abdominal obesity, diabetes mellitus or glucose intolerance, dyslipidemia, coronary artery disease, and hypertension. The incidence of metabolic syndrome, also called insulin-resistance, polymetabolic syndrome, syndrome X, civilization syndrome and the “deadly quartet”, increases in parallel with obesity.

Type ll diabetes and heart failure are often observed in the presence of metabolic syndrome. Some of the causes of the disease include overweight or obesity, diet (excessive sugar consumption), coronary artery disease, type II diabetes, stress, genetic factors, advanced age, rheumatological diseases, psychological and psychiatric factors, and factors such as alcohol use.
