It is estimated that approximately 34% of adults in the United States have metabolic syndrome, with that percentage becoming higher in older populations. The disorder is characterized by the simultaneous presence of three of five conditions: Abdominal obesity, elevated blood pressure, elevated fasting plasma glucose, high serum triglycerides, and low high-density cholesterol levels. The condition increases the risk of cardiovascular disease, heart failure, stroke, and diabetes. The condition has wide ranging implications on an individuals health, and it is important that medical professionals be able to explain this to patients. With this fascinating display, this becomes much easier.

The display includes miniature models of the heart, brain, kidney, liver, an artery, and the pancreas. The included keycard displays the potential effects of the syndrome; stroke, congestive heart failure, coronary artery disease, angina, myocardial infarction, no-alcoholic fatty liver disease, artherosclerosis, renal arteriosclerosis, and nephrosclerosis. The combined impact of the information and the models will surely help clarify the dangers to patients at risk of or afflicted by metabolic syndrome.

Metabolic syndrome occurs frequently in obese individuals, and, frequently, the disorder is treated through a change of diet and lifestyle. We recommend pairing this display with one of our nutrition posters. These posters can help patients better understand the importance of a healthy diet, and displays like How Does Your Sugar Stack Up can help bring ones sugar intake into sharper focus, a great way to help individuals maintain a healthier lifestyle.

This display is presented on a base, making it ideal for patient education. It also makes a powerful visual addition to medical facilities and health clinics.

Made by GPI Anatomicals. Display stands 10 tall. Each model measures about 4.5x2x4, and the base measures 9x6.25. Weighs 3 lbs.
