The article offers information on childhood metabolic syndrome. Also called syndrome X, this condition describes a cluster of cardiovascular risk factors which predict the development of cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes. Several components in the definition of metabolic syndrome in children include obesity element, dyslipidemia elements, elevated blood pressure, and an element representing glucose metabolism. A stronger predictor of metabolic syndrome in adulthood is the presence of childhood obesity.
