    Metabolic syndrome (MS) is a cluster of cardiovascular (CV) risk factors (hypertension, dyslipidemia, obesity, and glucose homeostasis alterations), and insulin resistance (IR) is suggested to be a common pathogenic background. In the general population, MS and IR have been proven to be risk...

    INSULIN RESISTANCE SYNDROME (IRS) is known as metabolic syndrome, syndrome X, glucose intolerance, prediabetes, and type III diabetes. IRS is the long-term detrimental result of elevated insulin (hyperinsulinemia) and serum glucose levels (hyperglycemia). Initially insulin insensitivity develops...
