Metabolic syndrome (MetSyn) may predispose to cardiovascular disease (CVD) by causing vascular dysfunction. This study aimed to determine the association of MetSyn with vascular function, as assessed by brachial artery flow-mediated dilatation (FMD) and hyperemic shear stress (HSS). A total of 1,417 male firefighters without established diabetes and CVD were classified for MetSyn, according to the National Cholesterol Education Program Adult Treatment Panel III (NCEP) definition. MetSyn was… CONTINUE READING
