Metabolic Syndrome Symptoms

If you have metabolic syndrome, your symptoms will depend on which of the five conditions you have. Some symptoms can be seen, while others are not as obvious. For example, you or your healthcare provider may notice that you have a large waistline. However, high blood pressure, high blood triglycerides, and low HDL cholesterol, or “good” cholesterol, usually do not cause any symptoms.

High blood sugar may cause the following symptoms:

  • Blurred vision
  • Increased thirst
  • Increased urination, especially at night
  • Tiredness and weakness

Your provider may tell you that you have metabolic syndrome based on tests, such as blood pressure readings and blood tests, that you would get as part of a routine medical visit. Learn more about tests you can expect to help your provider diagnose metabolic syndrome.
