Abstract The metabolic syndrome MetS is a constellation of risk factors that are associated with increased risks for coronary heart disease and type 2 diabetes. Although the cause is unknown, abdominal adiposity is considered the underpinning of these metabolic alterations. Hence, increased abdominal adiposity contributes to dyslipidemia, hyperglycemia, beta cell dysfunction, insulin resistance, hypertension and inflammation. The role of abdominal adiposity in the causation of metabolic alterations that lead to the clinical expression of the MetS has become a focus of active research. In addition, there are ethnic-racial differences in the manifestation of the MetS. Therefore, the focus of this current review is to: 1 explore the consequences of abdominal obesity within the MetS paradigm; and 2 discuss the impact of ethnicity-race on MetS in Black People of African Ancestry PAA.
