CORREIA, Luis Cláudio Lemos; LATADO, Adriana L.  and  BARRETO-FILHO, José Augusto. Metabolic or pseudometabolic syndrome?. Arq. Bras. Cardiol. [online]. 2012, vol.98, n.4, pp.e74-e75. ISSN 0066-782X.

Metabolic syndrome has been proposed as a predictor of cardiovascular risk. However, such idea lacks strong scientific basis. This article reviews the evidence regarding that issue, challenging the existing paradigm of the prognostic value of metabolic syndrome.

Keywords : Risk factors; diabetes mellitus; obesity; abdominal circumference; prognosis.
