We investigated whether there is a link between the metabolic syndrome or its components and homocysteine levels in a population without cardiovascular disease. Methods From the population sample of 382 participants (286 females and 96 males) we isolated those reflecting the metabolic syndrome and determined their homocysteine levels. We then evaluated the association of homocysteine with… CONTINUE READING
