Metabolic Chemistry Panel

Metabolic Syndrome Chemistry -- Brand New!

  1. Estimated 47 million people with metabolic syndrome
  2. One in six Americans are at risk

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”.

There are a huge number of references for metabolic syndrome. Click here sampling of what CardioCheck found regarding Metabolic Syndrome.

“When a person has central obesity (too much weight around the waist),
abnormal blood fat levels (e.g. high triglyceride level or low HDL cholesterol;
See section 11), high blood pressure and high blood sugar at the same time,
this is known as metabolic syndrome.”

The IDF consensus worldwide definition of the metabolic syndrome

Part 1: Worldwide definition for use in clinical practice

Table 1: The new International Diabetes Federation (IDF) definition
According to the new IDF definition, for a person to be defined as having the metabolic       syndrome they must have:

  • Central obesity (defined as waist circumference > 94cm for Europid men and

       > 80cm for Europid women, with ethnicity specific values for other groups)

       plus any two of the following four factors:

  • raised TG level: > 150 mg/dL (1.7 mmol/L), or specific treatment for this

      lipid abnormality

  • reduced HDL cholesterol: < 40 mg/dL (1.03 mmol/L*) in males and < 50

      mg/dL (1.29 mmol/L*) in females, or specific treatment for this lipid abnormality

  • raised blood pressure: systolic BP 3 130 or diastolic BP 3 85 mm Hg, or

treatment of previously diagnosed hypertension

  • raised fasting plasma glucose (FPG) > 100 mg/dL (5.6 mmol/L), or previously diagnosed type 2 diabetes. If above 5.6 mmol/L or 100 mg/dL, OGTT is strongly recommended but is not necessary to define presence of the syndrome.

American Heart Association, Circulation. 2005;112:3066-3072.

“The incidence of cardiovascular disease (CVD), coronary heart disease (CHD), and type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) has not been well defined in persons with the metabolic syndrome (at least 3 of the following: abdominal adiposity, low HDL cholesterol, high triglycerides, hypertension, and impaired fasting glucose).”

JAMA, the Metabolic Syndrome, Vol. 295 No. 7, February 15, 2006.
 
“Definition of the Metabolic Syndrome

  • Abdominal (waist) circumference greater than 40 inches for men or 35 inches for women
  • High blood pressure (hypertension)
  • Hyperglycemia (fasting blood sugar more than 110 mg/dL)
  • Elevated triglycerides (a type of fat in the bloodstream)
  • Low levels of high-density lipoprotein, also known as HDL or ‘good cholesterol’ “

 

II. Use of the term “Metabolic Syndrome” in Medical Practice

  1. Cleveland Clinic Foundation, Cleveland, OH

The Cleveland Clinic Foundation uses the National Cholesterol Education Program definition of metabolic syndrome.
See http://www.clevelandclinic.org/heartcenter/pub/women/metabolic.htm.
“The National Cholesterol Education Program has defined five elements of the syndrome:

  • an “enlarged waist” – defined as waist measurement of at least 35.2” for women, 40” for men
  • high blood pressure - 130/85 or higher
  • low levels of good (HDL) cholesterol - less than 50 mg/dl for women and less than 40 mg/dl for men
  • elevated levels of blood fats (triglycerides) - 150 mg/dl or more
  • insulin resistance - blood glucose (sugar) level is higher than normal, or a fasting blood glucose of 110 mg/dl or more.

An individual with three or more of these five characteristics has the metabolic syndrome.”

Medical Edge Newspaper Column from Mayo Clinic:

      METABOLIC SYNDROME: A PRECURSOR TO HEART DISEASE

      DEAR MAYO CLINIC: I have been diagnosed with metabolic syndrome and           
      was told that it can affect my heart health as much as smoking two packs of    
      cigarettes a day can. What does metabolic syndrome have to do with heart    
      disease?

     ANSWER: Metabolic syndrome is a cluster of conditions — high blood pressure,     
     excess fat around the waist (apple-shaped body), low levels of HDL cholesterol  
     (the “good” cholesterol), and high levels of blood sugar and the blood fat called
     triglycerides — that occur together.


    Cardiometabolic Program

     The Cardiometabolic Program within the Cardiovascular Health Clinic at Mayo Clinic  
     in Rochester offers a unique, personalized treatment plan for people with metabolic  
     syndrome. Based on Mayo's highly successful cardiac rehabilitation program, we   
     combine diet and exercise prescriptions with a state-of-the-art facility, hands-on   
     experiences and a focus on behavioral change to maximize success.

   Metabolic Syndrome

    Metabolic syndrome is a long-recognized medical condition, but has been defined only   
    recently. A person is diagnosed with the syndrome when he or she has three of these
    five disorders affecting metabolism:

  • High blood pressure
  • High blood sugar
  • High triglycerides
  • Low HDL ('good') cholesterol
  • Abdominal obesity

   While any of these factors is unhealthy, the net effect of having at least three of these    
   disorders is even worse, dramatically increasing the risk for cardiovascular disease and    
   diabetes. In fact, metabolic syndrome carries the same cardiovascular risk as smoking
   two packs of cigarettes a day. The good news is that intervention and treatment in a
   comprehensive program can decrease cardiovascular risk and prevent the onset of
   diabetes.

Special Report

Diabetes and Metabolic Syndrome

Most people have never heard of metabolic syndrome, a common condition in which insulin resistance plays a key role.

For many years, physicians have recognized that elevated blood glucose levels, high blood pressure, obesity, and abnormal blood lipid levels tend to occur together in certain individuals. This cluster of symptoms—previously called “The Deadly Quartet,” syndrome X, or insulin resistance syndrome—is now commonly referred to as metabolic syndrome. Almost one in four American adults has metabolic syndrome, which increases the risk of diabetes, coronary heart disease, and stroke.
How Common Is Metabolic Syndrome?
In 2001, the National Cholesterol Education Program (sponsored by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute) proposed the following criteria for the diagnosis of metabolic syndrome. A person needs to have at least three of the following five factors to be diagnosed with the condition:

  1. abdominal obesity (a waist circumference greater than 40 inches in men or 35 inches in women)
  2. triglyceride levels of 150 mg/dL or greater
  3. high density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol levels of less than 40 mg/dL in men or 50 mg/dL in women
  4. blood pressures of 130/85 mm Hg or higher, or taking antihypertensive medication
  5. fasting blood glucose levels of 110 mg/dL or greater

While only 7% of men and women age 20 to 29 meet this definition of metabolic syndrome, the percentage rises to more than 40% of those age 60 and older. Metabolic syndrome is more common in Mexican Americans (32%) than in whites (24%) or blacks (22%).
