New treatment options for patients with metabolic syndrome

  title={New treatment options for patients with metabolic syndrome},
  author={B. Wożakowska-Kapłon},
The occurrence of metabolic syndrome is a risk factor for developing cardiovascular disease. Moreover, the size of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) particles, and liver dysfunction identified as non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), both represent important biomarkers for the development of cardiometabolic risk in patients with metabolic syndrome. Patients being treated with bergamot polyphenolic fraction show significant reductions in fasting plasma glucose, serum LDL cholesterol, and… Expand
