Heart Advice from Texas Heart Institute

Season 6, Ep. 6

This past week on Your Health First, Dr. Briana Costello with the Texas Heart Institute, shared her experience on metabolic syndrome and its role in heart disease and fatty liver. Metabolic syndrome generally consists of: obesity (specifically belly fat), pre or type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and increased levels of cholesterol. Fatty liver is seen in the vast majority of such cases of metabolic syndrome. Unfortunately, those with metabolic syndrome have an increased chance of developing serious heart complication - such as heart attack, stroke, and premature death.
