Obesity is often associated with increased risk of cardiometabolic morbidities and mortality. However, evidence shows that some obese individuals are more likely to develop such risk factors early in life, including those with Metabolic Syndrome (MetS). Whether the presence of MetS in obese people impairs cardiac autonomic modulation (CAM) remains to be investigated. METHODS Cross-sectional study. Sixty-six subjects were classified as normal-weight (NW, n = 24) or obese (BMI ≥ 30 kg·m-2… CONTINUE READING
