AbstractIn 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 in hypercholesterolemia and high LDL cholesterol levels in cases versus controls. Central obesity and low HDL cholesterol levels increased significantly in controls but not in cases. As there were no significant differences between the 2 groups in energy and macronutrient intakes, it is difficult to claim that nutritional interventions played an important role

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 ...
