Summary

The metabolic syndrome (MetS) is a spectrum of conditions that increase the risk of cardiovascular disease and diabetes mellitus. The components of MetS include dysglycemia, visceral obesity, atherogenic dyslipidemia (elevated triglycerides and low levels of high-density lipoprotein) and hypertension. An association of periodontal disease and MetS has been suggested. This association is believed to be the result of systemic oxidative stress and an exuberant inflammatory response.

Physical activity is associated as a potential tool for reduction of periodontal disease prevalence. The frequency of physical activity is directly related to a low occurrence of periodontitis.

Description

For 6 months, MeTS elderly (25 elderly) with chronic periodontal disease will be involved in sixty-minute Baduanjin physical training (5 session weekly). Also, for 6 months, another MeTS elderly (25 elderly) with chronic periodontal disease will serve as a control non-trained group.
