Adults with disabilities are more likely to be overweight, or obese, than adults without disabilities.

Understanding your cardiovascular disease risk factors is the first step for you to take control over your health. Begin by screening for metabolic syndrome as earlier as possible, even if you don't think that you have any signs and symptoms. The key is prevention.
