    which men are most in danger and most in need of drugs,
    weight loss and exercise.

    The five measurements are used to define metabolic
    syndrome, or "syndrome x." They are a measurement of
    unhealthy fat, usually done with a simple waist

    cholesterol -- low levels of HDL or "good" cholesterol,
    high glucose and high blood pressure.
