    I hadn't heard of this condition before.

    The metabolic syndrome (MS) is a cluster of metabolic derangements that are associated with primary disturbances in adipose tissue. Abnormal visceral fat accumulates from physical inactivity and excess calories in genetically susceptible individuals. This increased adipocyte mass acts as an endocrine organ and communicates with other organ systems via increases in inflammatory cytokines. The resulting disorders define MS as increased waist circumference, decreased serum high-density lipoprotein, and increased serum triglyceride levels, hypertension, and insulin resistance. MS accounts for the majority of cardiovascular disease risk in the U.S. population.

    Metabolic syndrome is a different condition. "Complications of metabolic derangement" likely refers to electrolyte imbalances from cyclic vomiting. I can't say for sure what happened in this case, but one thing that we always try to prevent is a potassium or a magnesium deficiency, as these can lead to cardiac arrest.

    I wouldn't wish death by cyclic vomiting on my worst enemy

    Ugh, sounds awful! Thanks for the explanation!
