dc.description.abstractThere is accumulating evidence suggesting that inflammation is the bridging link between cardiovascular disease and metabolic syndrome. Recent studies have shown a relationship between inflammatory markers and modifiable lifestyle factors including fitness, diet, exercise and smoking. We carried out a cross-sectional study of 195 patients with metabolic syndrome. Data on nutritional intake, physical activity level and smoking habits were collected through a questionnaire. Weight and body composition were determined and C-reactive protein and interluekin-6 concentrations were measured. C-reactive protein level had a significant association with body mass index [‎r = 0.18]‎, adiposity [‎r = 0.23]‎, smoking [‎r = 0.20]‎, carbohydrate intake [‎r = 0.19]‎ and saturated fatty acid [‎r = 0.20]‎. Interluekin-6 concentration was significantly correlated with dietary carbohydrate [‎r = 0.15]‎, saturated fatty acid [‎r = 0.15]‎ and glycaemic load [‎r = 0.15]‎. No association was observed between physical activity level and inflammatory markersEN
