In India nearly 10000 people were affected per year and overall it goes on escalating steadily due to amplified adulterated human behaviours.

Classical books of Siddha were used for literary survey and databases were also analysed with the prime terminology “Metabolic syndrome” for this systemic review. The speculative backdrop, broad set of strategy in aetiology, pathogenesis and management of MS are discussed at extent through Siddha system, in the paper which would be creditable in managing in an effectual and gainful approach.
