This syndrome is closely linked to a generalized metabolic disorder called insulin resistance in which the normal actions of insulin are impaired.

Fibrinogen as a risk factor for coronary heart disease. This approach is designated therapeutic lifestyle changes TLC. While ATP III maintains attention to intensive treatment of patients with CHD, its major new feature is a focus on primary prevention in persons with multiple risk factors.

Am J Cardiol, 81pp. Nut consumption, lipids and risk of a coronary event. Am J Clin Nutr, 76pp. Additional risk reduction can be achieved by simultane-ously ewpaol physical activity.

When drugs are prescribed, attention to TLC should always be maintained and reinforced. Evaluation and general esspaol of patients with and at risk for AKI. The former include obesity, physical inactivity, and atherogenic diet; the latter consist of lipoprotein ahomocysteine, prothrombotic and proinflammatory factors, impaired fasting glucose, and evidence of subclinical atherosclerotic disease.

Factors characteristic of the metabolic syndrome are abdominal obesity, atherogenic dyslipidemia elevated triglyceride, small LDL particles, low HDL cholesterolraised blood pressure, insulin resistance with or without glucose intoleranceand prothrombotic and espalo states.


LDL is not counted among the risk factors in Table 3 because the purpose of counting those risk factors is to modify the treatment of LDL. Even if drug treatment is started, TLC should be continued.

Obes Res, 6pp. Therapeutical potential of plant sterols and stanols. For persons whose LDL cholesterol levels are already below goal levels upon first encounter, instructions for appropriate changes in life habits, periodic followup, and control of other risk factors are needed.

The cut-points for initiating lifestyle and drug therapies are shown in Table 5. Bleeding Risk in Atrial Fibrillation: The major risk factors, exclusive of elevated LDL cholesterol, are used to define the presence of multiple risk factors that modify the goals and cutpoints for LDL-lowering treatment, and these are listed in Table 3.
