Frequency of metabolic syndrome in obesity: a comparison of current criteria of IDF and NCEP-ATPIII

Abstract

Results The sample comprises 100 patients, 89 women and 11 men, with means of age 44.05 (±11.92) yrs. old, of weight 116.404 (±23.42) kg, of BMI 45.93 (±7.93) kg/m2 and of Abdominal Circumference of 129.08 (±15.531) cm. From the 100 patients, 34(%) reported performing pretreatment for DM2, 73(%) for hypertension and 48(%) for dyslipidemia. According to the NCEP-ATPIII, 73 patients had MS, from which 79.45% carried Morbid Obesity (MO) and 20.54% did not (p=0.564). According to the IDF, 88 patients had MS, from which 77.27% carried MO and 22.73% did not (p=0.634). The average age of MS patients was 45.66 (±11.89) and of non-carriers was 39.70 (±11.06) yrs. old (p=0.026), according to NCEP-ATPIII. According to IDF, the average age of MS patients was 44.94 (±12.12) and of non-carriers was 37.50 (±7.94) yrs. old (p=0.042). The average age of the MO was 42.85 (±11.77) and of the non-morbid was 48.32 (±11.72) yrs. old (p=0.057).
