Debido a que el síndrome metabólico involucra múltiples factores de riesgo, es importante que usted y su médico revisen cuidadosamente su salud. En general, se debería asegurar que usted y su médico revisen regularmente su peso, niveles de glucosa, lipoproteínas (niveles de colesterol), y presión arterial.

El síndrome metabólico se puede manejar al tratar y controlar sus anormalidades metabólicas subyacentes. Si se diagnostica temprano, el síndrome metabólico se puede desacelerar, y en algunos casos, incluso revertir.
