Metabolic Syndrome Associated With Chronic Kidney Disease

What do fat people like almost as much as food?

According to the current study by Thomas and colleagues, metabolic syndrome (MetS) includes several abnormalities that have been associated with increased risks for cardiovascular disease, stroke, and all-cause mortality. MetS has a prevalence of 34% and has been increasing. Coronary heart disease also has increased in prevalence, and an association has been shown between MetS and proteinuria or albuminuria.

This systematic review and meta-analysis examines the association between MetS and chronic kidney disease (CKD) and whether the number of MetS components affects this association.

Study Synopsis and Perspective

MetS and its components are linked to the development of CKD, according to the results of a systematic review and meta-analysis reported online August 18 in the Clinical Journal of the American Society of Nephrology.
