Abstract:

Sympathetic activation or, more adequate, autonomic imbalance has been found associated with cardiovascular and total mortality in the general population.

These findings not only suggest that autonomic imbalance is a further feature of the metabolic syndrome but also emphasize the possible benefits of targeted treatment in this cardiovascular high-risk population.
