  Purpose

We plan to test the hypothesis that patients with metabolic syndrome will have impaired left ventricular diastolic parameters. In addition, those who have weight loss and exercise will improve these parameters. Finally, with continued exercise and weight regain, the parameters measured that we believe will be improved will be maintained.
