Symptoms of Metabolic Syndrome

Metabolic syndrome is not just one disease or disorder, but rather a group of risk factors for cardiovascular disease. Most of these risk factors do not have symptoms. They may only be detected by tests done by your doctor. This is one reason why it is important to have regular check-ups.
