Metabolic syndrome is a cluster of conditions that occur together, increasing your risk for heart disease, stroke and diabetes. Having just one of these conditions — increased blood pressure, elevated insulin levels, excess body fat around the waist or abnormal cholesterol levels — contributes to your risk of serious disease. In combination, your risk is even greater.
Introducing the Metabolic Chemistry Panel. This new test strip measures: HDL Cholesterol, Triglycerides and Glucose.
The American Heart Association and the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute recommend that the metabolic syndrome be identified as the presence of three or more of these components:
Elevated waist circumference:
- Men — Equal to or greater than 40 inches (102 cm)
- Women — Equal to or greater than 35 inches (88 cm)
Elevated triglycerides: Equal to or greater than 150 mg/dL
- Reduced HDL (“good”) cholesterol: Men — Less than 40 mg/dL
- Women — Less than 50 mg/dL
Elevated blood pressure: Equal to or greater than 130/85 mm Hg
Elevated fasting glucose: Equal to or greater than 100 mg/dL
DEVELOPMENT OF A METABOLIC SYNDROME PANEL TEST STRIP
The reason CardioChek decided to develop this product (Metabolic Syndrome Panel) was quite simple. They had a number of our customers asking: “Do you have a ‘Metabolic Syndrome Panel’ containing glucose, HDL cholesterol and triglycerides?” The most appropriate name was “Metabolic Syndrome Panel”.
