Special Issue Information
Metabolic syndrome constitutes a group of three to five conditions which increase the risk of cardiovascular diseases. A combination of elevated waist circumference, triglycerides, blood pressure, fasting glucose, and low HDL cholesterol, which constitute the parameters of metabolic syndrome, can alter the metabolism of the entire body.
There is increasing interest around factors that trigger the development of metabolic syndrome, such as dietary intake of specific nutrient combinations, genetic predisposition, or inflammation. In recent years, the incidence of metabolic syndrome has increased worldwide, affecting more and more individuals.
The intention of this Special Issue is to share additional scientific data that could enhance our knowledge of the causes and effects of metabolic syndrome. Additionally, it aims to further clarify the role of metabolic syndrome in specific groups of people/patients and diseases.
We are pleased to invite clinicians and researchers to submit any relevant scientific work on this interesting and promising Special Issue of Metabolites.
We look forward to your contributions.
