Metabolic syndrome in family practice in Jordan: a study of high-risk groups
РезюмеThis study assessed the prevalence of the metabolic syndrome, and its components, as defined by Adult Treatment Panel III criteria in Jordanian patients attending a family practice clinic for management of cardiovascular risk factors. The sample was 730 randomly selected patients aged >/= 25 years. The prevalence of metabolic syndrome was 37.4% [31.7% in men; 41.0% in women]. The prevalence increased with age in the total sample and in both sexes. High waist circumference showed the highest prevalence in the total sample [61.6%]. Among females it ranked as the first criterion [73.5%]. High serum triglyceride level showed the highest prevalence in males [50.2%]. Differences between the sexes were significant. Family practitioners should be alerted to the importance of multiple risk factors in the metabolic syndrome

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 ...
Maoujoud, O.; Ahid, S.; Asseraji, M.; Bahadi, A.; Aatif, T.; Zajari, Y.; Oualim, Z. (2011)We 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 ...
Effect of nutritional intervention on the prevalence of metabolic syndrome and heart disease risk factors in urban Tehran [Tehran Lipid and Glucose Study] Romezankhani, A.; Mirmiran, P.; Azizi, F. (2011)In a case-control study a nutritional intervention consisting of an educational programme based on the Therapeutic Lifestyle Change diet [TLC] guidelines was implemented in one area of Tehran. Data were collected from subjects in the intervention area [n =133] and controls from another area [n =183], before and 3.8 years after the intervention. Mean energy and macronutrient intakes and prevalence of risk factors including metabolic syndrome were compared between and within cases and controls. Baseline and follow-up evaluations showed improvement ...
