Are gender and ethnicity risk factors for metabolic syndrome in children?
Date:1/30/2013

New Rochelle, NY, January 30, 2013Metabolic syndrome is more likely to affect children who are obese than overweight or non-overweight and who have other characteristics associated with the disorder, such as high blood pressure or insulin resistance.

Some evidence suggested that there may also be an association between ethnicity and region of the world where a child lives and the prevalence of metabolic syndromea possible link that warrants further study.
