CEREZO, Gustavo H. Metabolic syndrome: What should we know about metabolic syndrome in our daily practice?. Insuf. card. [online]. 2010, vol.5, n.3, pp.137-143. ISSN 1852-3862.

Metabolic syndrome (MS) or insulin resistance syndrome is a pathological entity that has caught the attention of many scientists from different specialties within the last two decades. This clinical setting, which is characterized by a constellation of risk factors for cardiovascular disease and the development of diabetes mellitus type two, has a high prevalence worldwide and it is growing. The MS has generated lots of controversy regarding its classification, cutoff point of its variables, physiopathology and prevalence in different populations, which still persist today. This synthetic review aims to bring essential knowledge to practitioners about a clinical setting with a great epidemiological and individual importance, in order to assist our patients to break the vicious circle that represents the MS, because if this does not happen, our patients sooner or later result in severe complications that compromise their quality and quantity of life.

Palabras clave : Metabolic syndrome; Insulin resistance syndrome; Risk factors; Cardiovascular disease; Diabetes mellitus type 2.
