If you are doing the opposite of the three points above, it is very easy that you will be obese because in your daily routine, you are imbalanced between eating and energy consumption. Obesity is closely related to inter-lifestyle diseases. In particular, obese people with excessive accumulation of visceral fat and “obesity visceral fat” are very likely to lead to “metabolic syndrome”, potentially causing many problems to the body.

What is metabolic syndrome?

Metabolic syndrome, also known as “visceral fat syndrome”, occurs when the amount of visceral fat accumulates around the organ, causing problems such as two hypertension, abnormal serum lipids, or hyperglycemia.

Overweight accumulation of visceral fat is common in adult obesity in general and those with a weight increase of 10% or more. There is no doubt that a significant portion of the main weight gain is due to the accumulation of visceral fat. The rapid increase in body weight, difficult to control, is the main cause of high blood pressure problems, dyslipidemia (high neutral lipid, low HDL cholesterolemia), or symptoms of blood sugar high. Therefore, to reduce these diseases, adjusting the lifestyle (diet, living, movement) is a prerequisite.

By the way, this metabolic syndrome is a specific symptom for adult men and is less common in women during pre-menopause. This is because men and women have different types of fats on their bodies. Because pre-menopausal women have difficulty accumulating visceral fat, metabolic syndrome is more difficult than men. In addition, the risk of accumulating more visceral fat in men after age 50 is also noteworthy.

To reduce the risk of metabolic syndrome

How can you reduce your risk of developing metabolic syndrome?

Because the cause behind metabolic syndrome is too much accumulation of visceral fat, first of all, let’s try to change our daily lifestyle and habits to reduce visceral fat.

Typically, a man over the age of 30 should not increase his body weight to 10% of his or her body weight at the age of 20.
Initially, for the most accurate diagnosis of metabolic syndrome, medical facilities often use CT scans. The area of ​​visceral fat is 150 cm2 or more, which is determined to be pathological, and for those who have visceral fat ranges of 100 cm2 to 150 cm2, it is also worrisome to check Check and follow up. A traditional and simple way to test is to use a belly ruler to determine your waist, thereby estimating the amount of visceral fat.

For standard waist circumference, men will be 85 cm and women will be 90 cm. From there you can estimate how much of your visceral fat is if you use a regular abdominal measurement (note that this method does not give you the exact amount of visceral fat, you can only wish quantity and judgment.

How to measure and control the state of visceral fat in more detail

The simplest way is to measure the body’s second ring to see how your belly has changed. The use of a tape measure to obtain previous and next comparison data is also an easy way to accomplish. However, in this form, we only judge but cannot give a firm confirmation about the amount of excess visceral fat.

In some cases, even if the body does not have a lot of visceral fat, the abdomen becomes larger when the amount of muscle is increased. And of course, this situation is not a metabolic syndrome but we are always afraid.

The correct, scientific method to control the body fat of each body is to use body weight measurement. In this way, the indicators will be given in detail, carefully based on the measurement and analysis of muscle and fat status. This measure is much more precise, accurate and scientific than measuring body mass with a regular measure.

Use the body composition analytical balance to get the most accurate analysis and evaluation indicators, thereby giving the appropriate diet and exercise plan, bringing about a healthy and scientific lifestyle. strong.
