Abstract

Metabolic syndrome (syndrome X) is combination of medical disorders such as central obesity, hypertension arterialis, glucose intolerance or diabetes type 2 and dyslipidemia. The results of recently reported investigations which demonstrate the powerful influence of the mother’s metabolic state on whether the offsprings developes obesity or metabolic syndrome shed new light on our understanding of „fetal metabolic programming”. According to this hypothesis exposition of the fetus to the intrauterine milieu can have profound effects on health of the offsprings and it is predisposition to some of diseases such as obesity, hyperinsulinemia or hypertension. The topic is especially germane, considering the word-wide rise in the incidence and prevalence of obesity, metabolic syndrome, and type 2 diabetes, which are increasingly being characterized as an epidemic. The aim of this study was to review the newest opinion concerning this topic.
