Prevalence of Metabolic Syndrome in Routine Check-up Program in Cyprus

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2017.111
Synopsis: 
This study estimated the prevalence of metabolic syndrome (MS) among patients of the Near East University Hospital check-up clinic in Cyprus. Approximately 37% of patients had MS.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Metabolic syndrome (MetS) represents a conglomeration of various metabolic abnormalities, including glucose intolerance, hypertension, increased triglycerides, and decreased high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C). This study evaluated the prevalence of MetS in a health check-up subjects.

Investigation of Metabolic Syndrome, Lipid Profile, and Levels of Apolipoprotein A-1, Apolipoprotein B100 and Small Dense LDL in Patients with Lichen Planus

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2017.134
Synopsis: 
This study evaluated the incidence of metabolic syndrome and lipid profile in patients with lichen planus. The indicators of IR including HOMA-IR and C-peptide values were remarkably elevated in the LP group and there were no differences in the levels total cholesterol, triglyceride, LDL, serum Apo B-100, and small dense LDL between the groups.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Lichen Planus (LP) is an idiopathic inflammatory dermatosis involving skin, mucosa, hair follicles, and nails. Increased insulin resistance (IR) and dyslipidemia can be seen in LP. In this study, we aimed to investigate the relationship between LP and metabolic syndrome, atherogenicity, and dyslipidemia.

A Combined Cross-sectional and Longitudinal Study of Predicting Metabolic Syndrome and Cardiovascular Disease by Using Haemoglobin in the Elderly

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2014.157
Pages: 
65–71
Synopsis: 
Metabolic syndrome (MetS) has an important implication from a preventive medicine perspective, as early recognition and intervention will reduce associated mortality and morbidity. To better identify patients at risk for developing MetS and cardiovascular disease, we conducted a combined cross-sectional and longitudinal study to shed light on the elevated haemoglobin (Hb) levels in the elderly. Haemoglobin is associated with MetS. Elevated Hb with a cut-off value of 14.6 and 13.7 for males and females respectively; can potentially be used as a marker to stratify the risks of developing MetS for both genders and cardiovascular disease in the female population.

Partial Protection from Metabolic Syndrome in Chronic Hepatitis C Elderly Subjects Due to Lower Triglyceride Level

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2014.123
Pages: 
116–22
Synopsis: 
Chronic hepatitis C is a protective factor against having metabolic syndrome and this effect might be due to lower triglyceride level in the elderly. Further studies are warranted for the underlying mechanisms.

ABSTRACT

Background: In Taiwan, subjects over 65 years old have higher prevalence of hepatitis C. Among these patients, around 50% have non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). Since cardiovascular diseases and diabetes are main causes of death in this age group, in this cross-sectional study, we tried to evaluate the effects of NAFLD and hepatitis C on the risk of metabolic syndrome (MetS).

Prevalence of the Metabolic Syndrome in Jamaican Adults and its Relationship to Income and Education Levels

Issue: 
Pages: 
265–73
Synopsis: 
In this cross-sectional study, the prevalence of the metabolic syndrome in Jamaican adults was 21.1% and 18.4% using the International Diabetes Federation and American Heart Association/National Heart Lung and Blood Institute criteria, respectively. Metabolic syndrome prevalence was associated with socio-economic status in men.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To estimate the prevalence of the metabolic syndrome in Jamaican adults and to evaluate its association with socio-economic status (SES).

Prevalence of the Metabolic Syndrome in Patients Presenting to the University Hospital of the West Indies: A Need to Adopt Proactive Screening and Specific Management Policy

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2011.220
Pages: 
802–8
Synopsis: 
The prevalence of metabolic syndrome in a group of adult psychiatric patients at the University Hospital of the West Indies was 28.9% and could represent a pathway to the future development of Type 2 diabetes mellitus and cardiovascular disease. Screening and continuous monitoring will allow for early intervention and possibly prevention of increased morbidity and mortality in this vulnerable population.
