Academic Journal
The article discusses a study conducted to assess the age and gender effects of metabolic syndrome (MetS) and metabolic disorders on all-cause and cardiovascular disease (CVD)-related mortality within an 8-year follow-up period in Taiwan. It has been informed that the study results show differential control of risk factors in different subpopulation as a strategy to prevent CVD-related mortality.
