Details:

Metabolic syndrome is a cluster of conditions that occur together, significantly increasing your 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. The chances of acquiring metabolic syndrome increase as we age, with nearly half of all Americans in their 60s and 70s being affected by the issue. The good news is that there are ways to reduce the impact of metabolic syndrome. Join Family Medicine specialist Dr. Faisal Nagarwala as he reviews the specific signs of these conditions, and how to prevent them through lifestyle changes that are possible for everyone. Lunch will be served. Registration required.
