Could this be metabolic syndrome?

My son is 35. He is average weight and does not have any significant belly fat. But he has high blood pressure. Total cholesterol is 305. Triglyceride 778. HDL is 59. Glucose 101.

Re: Could this be metabolic syndrome?

Is he a smoker? A drinker? Both can raise the triglycerides. Were the labs taken fasting? The triglycerides are dangerous- I hope the dr is following him.

It's possible that diet can cause high cholesterol even for people that are not fat.
