Prevalence of metabolic syndrome in chronic haemodialysis patients in Morocco
AbstractWe determined the prevalence of metabolic syndrome in 25 chronic haemodialysis patients in the haemodialysis centre of the Mohammed V military teaching hospital in Rabat. The mean age of the patients was 46.5 [SD 14.8] years and mean haemodialysis duration 62.9 [SD 38.4] months. We evaluated the 5 parameters of metabolic syndrome: waist circumference, hypertriglyceridaemia, high-density lipoprotein [HDL] cholesterol, blood pressure and blood glucose, In all, 11 [44%] patients had metabolic syndrome: 7 women and 4 men. Low HDL cholesterol was found in 100% of the patients, hypertriglyceridaemia in 90.9% and hypertension in 63.6%. There were significant differences between patients with and without metabolic syndrome with regard to levels of hypertriglyceridaemia and HDL cholesterol, and waist circumference. Factors significantly associated with the presence of metabolic syndrome were abdominal obesity, and systolic hypertension and hypertriglyceridaemia

Prevalence and correlates of metabolic syndrome in pre-crisis Syria: call for current relief efforts Ramadan, H.; Naja, F.; Fouad, F.M.; Antoun, E.; Jaffa, M.; Chaaban, R.; Haidar, M.; Sibai, A.M. (2016-09)This study aimed to assess the prevalence, components and correlates of metabolic syndrome [MetS] in adults in pre-crisis Aleppo, Syrian Arab Republic. We used a population-based, 2-stage cluster sampling method in a population of 557 men and 611 women, randomly selected from 83 residential neighbourhoods including many rural settlers. Sociodemographic and lifestyle characteristics, comorbidity, anthropometry and biochemical indices were measured. Prevalence of MetS was estimated at 39.6%, with comparable rates in men and women. Hypertension was ...
Abu Sham'a, R.A.H.; Darwazah, A.K.; Kufri, F.H.; Yassin, I.H.; Torok, N.I. (2009)In a cross-sectional survey conducted in 2005, we determined the prevalence metabolic syndrome [MetS] and other atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease risk factors among a sample of 342 Palestinians >/= 20 years in East Jerusalem. Participants were interviewed and anthropometric measurements and blood testing were done. MetS was found in 115 [33.6%] participants, with no significant difference between the sexes. The prevalence of obesity, diabetes and other cardiovascular risk factors was also high, with central obesity and obesity [BMI >/= 30 ...
Yasein, N.; Ahmad, M.; Matrook, F.; Nasir, L.; Froelicher, E.S. (2010)Metabolic syndrome is being reported more frequently in the Eastern Mediterranean region. Patients with hypertension attending family practice clinics in the University of Jordan Hospital between February and July 2006 were assessed for the frequency of metabolic syndrome and its individual components. Of 345 patients studied, 65% had metabolic syndrome. Females were more likely to meet Adult Treatment Panel-III criteria for the diagnosis. Diabetes mellitus was the most frequent component of metabolic syndrome in males, while low serum high-density ...
