dc.description.abstractIn 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 kg/m[‎2]‎]‎ being significantly higher in women [‎P < 0.01]‎. With the exception of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol and haemoglobin, there was a significantly higher prevalence of atherosclerotic markers among the MetS groupEN
