Managing Metabolic syndrome in Adults: Dan Goes Dancing

Dan Beck is 59 years old, semiretired, and lives with his wife in a midtown apartment complex. Dan was diagnosed with metabolic syndrome 10 years ago, and he has since gained 15 pounds. He attributes

his weight gain to lazy afternoons in front of the television and frequent suppers at a local buffet restaurant. Though he plans to take his wife ballroom dancing on the evening of their wedding anniversary, Dan fears he will be out of shape and uncomfortable in the tight confines of his old suit. His wife suggests that the couple speak with a health professional regarding the management of his metabolic syndrome before attempting to lose weight. The following information is obtained at a recent medical follow-up.
