Metabolic syndrome and schizoaffective disorder

Before making a diagnosis, the doctor must rule out other general medical conditions with similar symptoms, including:

  • Cushing’s syndrome
  • HIV-related illnesses
  • temporal lobe epilepsy
  • neurosyphilis
  • thyroid or parathyroid problems
  • alcohol or drug use disorders
  • metabolic syndrome

I don’t understand why metabolic syndrome is on this list. I have it. So that could be the cause of my illness.

Probably not. But it’s worthwhile bringing up with your doctor.
