Re: Who is inflammed? What is inflammation? A Mobility and Nutrition question.

I'm not an MD, or anything close to it. I'm a lowly Paramedic. However, I can answer the metabolic syndrome question. Essentially, metabolic syndrome refers to a spectrum of disorders and/or risk factors that make a person more prone to diabetes, heart disease, and other issues. It's not as clearly defined as the later conditions, but will usually include obesity, hypertension, hyperlipidemia (high cholesterol) and the like.
Note that almost all of those can be fixed with diet and exercise.
