Metabolic Syndrome and Male Fertility: Beyond Heart Consequences of a Complex Cardiometabolic Endocrinopathy
The present narrative review aims to discuss the pathophysiological mechanisms which link male infertility and MetS and to investigate the latest available evidence on the reproductive consequences of MetS.

Hyperhomocysteinemia combined with MS was associated with higher prevalence of stroke in Chinese adults with elevated blood pressure.
Correlation Between Thyroid Nodules and Metabolic Syndrome: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
Both male and female patients with MetS had an increased TNs prevalence and the prevalence was independent of age, and MetS is not considered to be associated with TNs in iodine-deficient populations.
The Roma Population Living in Segregated Settlements in Eastern Slovakia Has a Higher Prevalence of Metabolic Syndrome, Kidney Disease, Viral Hepatitis B and E, and Some Parasitic Diseases Compared to the Majority Population
Poor socio-economic conditions, an unhealthy lifestyle, and barriers precluding access to healthcare are factors that affect the Roma population in settlements and lead to an increased prevalence of metabolic syndrome and its components, kidney disease, viral hepatitis B and E, and some parasitic diseases.
Low Serum ZAG Levels Correlate With Determinants of the Metabolic Syndrome in Chinese Subjects
The decreased serum ZAG levels were associated with the increased risks of MetS, and receiver operation characteristic (ROC) curve analysis revealed that serum Z AG might serve as a candidate biomarker for MetS.
Macronutrient intake and physical activity levels in individuals with and without metabolic syndrome: An observational study in an urban population
In the current study, there was an inverse relationship between PAL and the risk of MetS, but no association was observed between individual dietary macronutrients intake and the incidence of metS.
A regulatory insertion-deletion polymorphism in FADS gene cluster determines PUFA synthesis and influences lipid profiles
A shift from precursors linoleic acid and alpha-linolenic acid to product AA and EPA, respectively, was observed consistent with FADS1 activity increasing in the order of genotypes D/D to I/D and I/I, as well as disease phenotypes.
Nutritional Status and Cardiometabolic Risk Factors in Institutionalized Adults with Cerebral Palsy
The studied population of adults with CP and GMFCS levels between IV and V is not a population at risk of MS; however, the high prevalence of malnutrition, as well as some of the most prevalent cardiovascular risk factors, should be taken into consideration.
Prevalence of metabolic syndrome among middle-aged and elderly adults in China: current status and temporal trends
The current prevalence of MetS was higher in women, older adults, those with lower education level, and in economically developed regions and the CVD risk factors among rural residents and women should be prioritised in making public health policy decisions.
This dissertation aims to provide a history of biochemistry in medicine in India and its applications in the context of modern medicine and its role in the treatment of cancer.


Role of Insulin Resistance in Human Disease
The possibility is raised that resistance to insulin-stimulated glucose uptake and hyperinsulinemia are involved in the etiology and clinical course of three major related diseases— NIDDM, hypertension, and CAD.
Does the metabolic syndrome improve identification of individuals at risk of type 2 diabetes and/or cardiovascular disease?
The metabolic syndrome is inferior to established predicting models for either type 2 diabetes or CVD and combined with either predicting model did not improve the prediction of either end point.
Preventing Type 2 diabetes and the dysmetabolic syndrome in the real world: a realistic view
There needs to be a realistic approach to interventions in both developed and developing nations, and in ethnic groups where a better understanding of the socio‐economic, cultural and demographic issues and perceptions surrounding chronic diseases such as diabetes is required.

It is reasonable to establish the cut-off point of VFA at 100 cm(2) as indicative of the risk of obesity-related disorders and a waist circumference of 85 cm in men and 90 cm in women approximates to this visceral fat mass.

The basic premise for the de®nition is that the metabolic syndrome is a syndrome of mild anomalies which, in combination, increase cardiovascular risk and because the syndrome includes nonmetabolic features, a more appropriate name would be the `insulin resistance syndrome'.
Cutoff values for normal anthropometric variables in asian Indian adults.
The cutoff value for normal BMI for men and women was 23 kg/m(2) for both sexes, and the cutoff values for WC and WHR were lower in women than in men, significantly lower compared with the corresponding values in white populations.
The metabolic syndrome: time for a critical appraisal: joint statement from the American Diabetes Association and the European Association for the Study of Diabetes.
The term "metabolic syndrome" refers to a clustering of specific cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk factors whose underlying pathophysiology is thought to be related to insulin resistance. Since the
The metabolic syndrome and total and cardiovascular disease mortality in middle-aged men.
Cardiovascular disease and all-cause mortality are increased in men with the metabolic syndrome, even in the absence of baseline CVD and diabetes, according to the Kuopio Ischaemic Heart Disease Risk Factor Study.
