Physical exercise and metabolic syndrome.

Summaries

The regular practice of physical activity has been recommended for the prevention and rehabilitation of cardiovascular diseases and other chronic diseases by different health associations around the world, such as the American College of Sports Medicine, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the American Heart Association, the National Institutes of Health, the US Surgeon General, the Brazilian Society of Cardiology, among others. Epidemiological studies have shown a direct relationship between physical inactivity and the presence of multiple risk factors such as those found in metabolic syndrome. However, it has been shown that regular physical exercise has beneficial effects in preventing and treating hypertension, insulin resistance, diabetes, dyslipidemia, and obesity. Thereby, fitness should be encouraged for everyone, healthy people with multiple risk factors, as long as they can participate in a physical training program. Just as clinical therapy maintains organ function, physical activity promotes favorable physiological adaptations, resulting in improved quality of life.

The regular practice of a physical activity is recommended for the prevention and rehabilitation of cardiovascular diseases and other chronic illnesses by the different health associations in the world, such as the American College of Sports Medicine, the Centers for the Control and Prevention of Diseases, the American Cardiologic Association, the National Institutes of Health, the US Surgeon General and the Brazilian Society of Cardiology, among others. Epidemiological studies have shown a direct relationship between physical inactivity and the presence of multiple risk factors such as those found in metabolic syndrome. However, it has been shown that the regular practice of physical exercise has beneficial effects in preventing and treating arterial hypertension, insulin resistance, diabetes, dyslipidemia, and obesity. Therefore, physical conditioning must be encouraged for all healthy people and with multiple risk factors to participate in a physical training program. As clinical therapy takes care to maintain the function of the organs, physical activity promotes favorable physiological adaptations, resulting in improved quality of life.

Regular physical activity practice has been recommended for the prevention and rehabilitation of cardiovascular diseases and other chronic diseases by different health care associations worldwide, such as the American College of Sports Medicine, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, American Heart Association, National Institute of Health, the US Surgeon General, the Brazilian Society of Cardiology and many others. Epidemiologic studies have shown a direct relationship between lack of physical activity and the presence of multiple risk factors such as those found in metabolic syndrome. The regular practice of physical exercise has been shown to have beneficial effects in preventing and treating blood hypertension, insulin resistance, diabetes, dyslipidemia, and obesity. Physical training, therefore, should be encouraged for both healthy individuals and those with multiple risks if they are capable of participating in a physical fitness program. Just as clinical therapy helps to maintain the function of organs, physical activity promotes favorable physiological adaptations that result in an improved quality of life.
