CATES:Metabolic syndrome and young adults

Many years ago, I worked with the cardiac catheterization laboratory (cath lab) at Baylor Heart & Vascular in Dallas. The cath lab is the department in the hospital where people who are suspected of having heart disease come in for diagnostic testing to determine the extent of that disease, and then intervene with stents and other technologies if the vessels that supply the heart have reduced blood flow—which hopefully prevents them from having a heart attack. Cath labs also can intervene in most cases where people are having an active heart attack (in the medical world we call those ST-elevated myocardial infarctions or STEMI’s), so the damage is minimized. That is why calling 911 if you think you are having a heart attack is so important. One week while I was there, we had 3 unusual STEMI patients come into the cath lab all in one week. Those 3 people were unusual because they were all under age 25. I had never seen anyone that young come into the cath lab having a heart attack before. Unfortunately, I have seen it again since. The reason for those people to have heart attacks at such a young age was largely because they all suffered from metabolic syndrome.
