Question Metabolic Syndrome vs. Diabetes 2

Anyone know the difference between them?
I feel they are somewhat synonymous..
80% of DM 2 patients are obese and will have horrible LDL/triglyc levels, etc.

As I see it, metabolic syndrome are a group of risk factors (HT, dyslipidemia, insuline resistance) that can lead you to DM (The disease per se).
