Cognitive dysfunction associated with metabolic syndrome.

Obesity Reviews 2007 September
Metabolic syndrome which includes visceral obesity, elevated triglycerides, elevated fasting blood sugar, high blood pressure and a decrease in high-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels comprises the most common chronic physical illnesses in modern society.
