30 minutes walking can reduce metabolic syndrome

INVC,, Delhi,, According to Padma Shri & Dr. B.C. Roy National Awardee, Dr. KK Aggarwal, President, Heart Care Foundation of India, 30 minutes of walking can reduce metabolic syndrome, for which he released the following health tips. ·    Controlling one's weight helps to slow down the build-up of calcium on the walls of the coronary arteries and retard the progression of atherosclerosis. Dr. Trevor J. Orchard and colleagues from the University of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, found that an increase in weight was the most influential modifiable risk factor associated with coronary artery disease progression, increasing the risk by 38 percent. ·    A brisk 30-minute walk most days of the week is enough to undo metabolic syndrome, a health condition that can lead to heart disease, diabetes and stroke as per a study published in the issue of the American Journal of Cardiology. About one-quarter of all adults have metabolic syndrome, a collection of risk factors that can eventually set you up for more serious health problems. While some experts debate the validity of considering metabolic syndrome a disease unto itself, the risk factors are potentially dangerous. They include a large waist circumference; high blood pressure; high levels of triglycerides; low levels of good (HDL) cholesterol; and high blood sugar. If you have three or more of the five risk factors, you have metabolic syndrome.
