Low HDL Cholesterol Marker for Metabolic Syndrome

Metabolic syndrome, also called syndrome X, is marked by several conditions including low levels of High Density Lipoprotein cholesterol. Levels of HDL below 40 mg/dL for men and 50 mg/dL for women have been listed by the National Cholesterol Education Program Adult Treatment Panel as one of 5 conditions that lead to metabolic syndrome. The others include high triglycerides, borderline high blood pressure, and high fasting blood glucose.

Metabolic syndrome is a name given to a group of risk factors for heart disease. If you have any three of the five conditions listed above you are said to have the syndrome and should take precautions against heart disease. There are currently about 20-30% of all people in industrialized countries around the world who have enough risk factors to be classified as having metabolic syndrome.

Just as with cholesterol problems alone, metabolic syndrome is brought about partly by genetics and partly by life style. A family history of any of the determining factors can mean that you will likely develop one or more of the conditions indicating metabolic syndrome. Also, life style choice such as not getting enough exercise or eating foods other than low cholesterol and low fat food contribute to the diseases and conditions found in metabolic syndrome.

To avoid medicating yourself for several conditions such as high total cholesterol, low HDL cholesterol, high blood pressure, or diabetes, many conditions can be controlled and managed through diet. Along with a balanced diet rich in specific nutrients, exercise plays a critical role. It helps to manage weight, control blood pressure, and raise HDL cholesterol. A simple and proven plan for lowering cholesterol and avoiding many of the other factors of metabolic syndrome is found in The 60 Day Prescription Free Cholesterol Cure.
