Metabolic Syndrome is a group of conditions that when found in the same person increase the risk of coronary artery disease, stroke and other health conditions.  The conditions most closely associated with this syndrome are hypertension, hyperlipidemia, diabetes and obesity. These also happen to be some of the most common chronic care conditions we treat as pharmacists. The goal of this program is to review these conditions and their treatments so as to better understand how they fit into the overall risk picture for metabolic syndrome.


At the completion of this activity, the participant will be able to:

  • Describe metabolic syndrome as a cluster of several disorders that together raise the risk of individuals developing atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease, insulin resistance, diabetes mellitus, and can lead to vascular and neurologic complications
  • Explain the prevalence of metabolic syndrome and epidemiological and statistical data
  • Discuss the rationale for the treatment and management of these related conditions to decrease the risk of metabolic complications and improve patient outcomes
