ABSTRACT
This article focuses on a study related to the central sympathetic drive in the dysmetabolic syndrome. There are indications that the sympathetic nervous system may be causally involved in several aspects of the cardiovascular risk factors of the dysmesabolic syndrome, including central obesity, hypertension, insulin resistance, and dyslipidaemia. People with the metabolic syndrome have high levels of sympathetic nerve activity. The origin of this sympathetic hyperactivity may at least in part be due to liyperinsulinaemia in the metabolic syndrome.
