IDF Consensus Definition Metabolic Syndrome

In 2005, the IDF Task Force on Epidemiology and Prevention developed a new definition of the metabolic syndrome in order to simplify diagnosis. The definition provides physicians with the tools to quickly identify those at risk and also to compare the impact across nations and ethnic groups. This 24-page booklet gives a clear overview of the definition criteria, ethnic values to take into account, additional research needed and recommendations for treatment.
