Metabolic Syndrome (cont.)

Metabolic Syndrome Symptoms

Symptoms depend on which components of the syndrome are present. Hypertension typically produces no symptoms but may present with blurred vision and headaches. Insulin resistance may be associated with difficulty losing weight and a sense of hypoglycemia (feeling of low blood sugar). In its extreme, metabolic syndrome can present with symptoms related to heart disease or stroke.
