The CVProfilor also provides measurements of standard blood pressure values (systolic, diastolic and mean arterial pressure), heart rate, body surface area (BSA) and BMI. A blood pressure reading below 120/80 is usually considered normal. The accompanying editorialist commented that, given that only 1 in 3 people with elevated blood pressure or cholesterol levels achieves adequate control, clinician should focus on treatment and control of traditional risk factors.

Metabolic syndrome increases your risk for developing more serious conditions such as cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes. If the number of cases and person years were not available, we used the relative risks comparing the highest versus lowest categories of egg intake to obtain a summary estimate.
