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
