What is metabolic dysregulation?

Metabolic dysregulation is not a disease as such but a cluster of cardiovascular risk factors, including high blood pressure, increased waist circumference, high triglycerides, and low HDL cholesterol. When 3 or more of the known risk factors are combined, the condition is called Metabolic Syndrome (MetS). Diet, lifestyle, sleep and stress management are some of the modifiable risk factors that you can manage to reduce your risk of chronic disease.
