Brief Summary:
To evaluate the effectiveness of Caduet in addition to therapeutic life-style change (TLC) intervention in resolving metabolic syndrome fifty three individuals were randomized to TLC intervention study with or without Caduet therapy for 12 months. The participants underwent monthly visits with investigators to obtain vital signs, and to undergo TLC counseling. Metabolic parameters were measured before and after intervention.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Metabolic Syndrome Behavioral: Therapeutic Lifestyle Change Drug: Caduet Pill Drug: Placebo Phase 4

Detailed Description:

Single center, investigator driven, double blinded, randomized with Caduet 5/10mg vs placebo. The participants visited with investigators on a monthly bases to evaluate the BP, weight, and obtain the waist measurements, and counseling. OGTT was performed at the beginning and the end of the study. Lipid and glucose parameters were measured 5 times in duration of the study period.

Exercise physiologists and dietitians completed the baseline evaluations and provided recommendations throughout the study period in person, via phone or e-mail: per subject preference. VO2 max was measured at the beginning and end of the study. Pedometers dispensed to encourage physical activity.
