Dr. Cheese and the Potato family – KISS - Keep it simple stupid!
By The International Chair on Cardiometabolic Risk [1:32 min.] [5MB]
While sitting in the cafeteria one lunch hour, Dr. Cheese starts wondering about the clinical use of the metabolic syndrome and whether abdominal obesity is its cause or a feature. Much to the amazement of Dr. Cheese and Dr. Meatball, Nurse Carrot responds that although insulin resistance can cause metabolic abnormalities, in clinical practice most individuals with insulin resistance have abdominal obesity and are therefore at increased risk of type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
