- International Diabetes Federation (IDF)
metabolic syndrome is a cluster of the most dangerous heart attack risk factors: diabetes and prediabetes, abdominal obesity, high cholesterol and high blood pressure. IDF believes that this is driving the twin global epidemics of type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. It would be more important to identify those individuals with metabolic syndrome early, so that lifestyle interventions and treatment may prevent the development of diabetes and/or cardiovascular disease. IDF has then launched a new definition to identify children and adolescents at increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease in later life.
The definition has been published in The Lancet and is also available as a booklet, downloadable at http://www.idf.org/webdata/docs/MetS_def_update2006.pdf.
