In brief: Many.
You need to look at and control lipids and hbp.
First, most have an apple build, ie. Carry weight on the torso, rather than buttocks and extremities. Family hx of hbp, cholesterol problems, diabetes 2, and ASHD or mi, especially if strong. I obtain fasting lipids, insulin, hgba1c. A lipid profile suggesting syndrome x is high triglycerides and low hdl. Ldl may be low becasue of high tgs.
