Could any medicines I'm taking be affecting my metabolic syndrome risk factors?
How might my family history affect my risk of getting metabolic syndrome and having cardiovascular problems?
Should I be taking aspirin therapy?
Remember that when you meet with your doctor, tell him or her about all of the medicines, herbs, and supplements you use. "Natural" medicines can be powerful, and they can interfere with the effectiveness of other drugs.
You could also keep a food diary for about a week before your next appointment. Just jot down the foods you eat each day. Then, you and your doctor can go over it together and talk about ways of improving your eating habits.
