    The prevalence of obesity in adult men is 35.5%, 35.8% in adult women, and 16.9% in children and adolescents. These numbers are far over the benchmarks of 15% obesity in adults and 5% in adolescents set as goals in Healthy People 2010. Evidence has shown that insulin resistance along with obesity are the two highest predictors of the metabolic syndrome. Dr. Brosius will discuss the clinical indicators, pathogenesis and treatment for the metabolic syndrome and its complications, focusing on kidney disease, which is rapidly becoming a national epidemic.
