Metabolic Syndrome Related Disorders
A recent study conducted by Dr. Okosun set out to clarify the role of elevated C-reactive protein in metabolic syndrome independent of abdominal obesity. Using a national representative sample, the study shows that C-reactive protein is associated with reduced risk of metabolic syndrome after adjusting for abdominal obesity independently of potential confounders. The study underscores weight reduction programs and other interventions targeted at weight reduction management in order to alleviate the risks of metabolic syndrome.
