Background:  Recently, a Joint Scientific Statement bridged differences between previous definitions of metabolic syndrome. Our objective was to estimate the prevalence of metabolic syndrome in a representative sample of US adults and to examine its correlates. 
Prevalence, treatment patterns and control rates of metabolic syndrome in a Chinese diabetic population: China Cardiometabolic Registries 3B study
To investigate the prevalence and risk factors of metabolic syndrome (MetS) in Chinese type 2 diabetes mellitus patients, and assess the effect of MetS on the treatment patterns and blood glucose,Expand
Prevalence of metabolic syndrome and its components based on a harmonious definition among adults in Morocco
TLDR
The prevalence of metabolic syndrome and associated risk factors is high among adults in Morocco, especially in women, and the most prevalent component in the population was abdominal obesity. Expand
The predictive value of metabolic syndrome for cardiovascular and all‐cause mortality: Tehran Lipid and Glucose Study
TLDR
This work estimated the predictive value of MetS and its components for total and CVD mortality and the association of total and cardiovascular disease mortality with metabolic syndrome is controversial. Expand
Prevalence of Metabolic Syndrome and Its Association with Physical Capacity, Disability, and Self‐Rated Health in Lifestyle Interventions and Independence for Elders Study Participants
To evaluate the prevalence of metabolic syndrome (MetS) and its association with physical capacity, disability, and self‐rated health in older adults at high risk of mobility disability, includingExpand
Prospective evaluation of metabolic syndrome and its components among long‐term liver recipients
TLDR
The prevalence of MS, its components and its associated factors in relatively long‐term liver recipients is described, prospectively, in patients in the early years after liver transplantation. Expand
Metabolic syndrome: definitions and controversies
TLDR
It is suggested that diagnosis, prevention and treatment in children and adolescents should better focus on established risk factors rather than the diagnosis of MetS, because of its alarmingly increasing prevalence. Expand
Definition, History, and Management of the Metabolic Syndrome and Management Gaps
The definition of the Metabolic Syndrome is still a work in progress despite a description of the association between visceral obesity and cardiovascular disease was already made by Morgagni back inExpand
The Role of Diabetes, Obesity, and Metabolic Syndrome in Stroke
TLDR
The authors summarize the current understanding of the epidemiology and pathophysiology of stroke associated with obesity, diabetes, and metabolic syndrome. Expand
Characteristics of the Metabolic Syndrome in the Patients of IBERICAN Study (Identification of the Spanish Population at Cardiovascular and Renal Risk)
TLDR
The CVRF analyzed were more frequent in patients with MetS and premorbid metabolic syndrome, and the prevalence and the clinical and epidemiological characteristics of patients with metabolic syndrome and pre-MetS included in the IBERICAN study are known. Expand
Magnitude and management of metabolic syndrome in Spain in 2008-2010: the ENRICA study.
TLDR
The prevalence of metabolic syndrome is high in Spain and considerable geographical differences exist in its distribution, and there is substantial room for improvement in the clinical management of premorbid metabolic syndrome. Expand

Self-reported prevalence and awareness of metabolic syndrome: findings from SHIELD
TLDR
This study assessed awareness of metabolic syndrome and evaluated health knowledge, attitudes and behaviours of respondents at risk and found that awareness and attitudes to metabolic syndrome were low. Expand
Metabolic Syndrome: epidemiology and more extensive phenotypic description. Cross-sectional data from the Bruneck Study
TLDR
The Metabolic Syndrome occurs very frequently in the general population aged 40–79 y, and is associated with several additional metabolic and nonmetabolic abnormalities that likely contribute to an increased cardiovascular risk. Expand
Prevalence of the metabolic syndrome among US adults: findings from the third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey.
TLDR
These results from a representative sample of US adults show that the metabolic syndrome is highly prevalent and the large numbers of US residents with the metabolic Syndrome may have important implications for the health care sector. Expand
Definition of Metabolic Syndrome: Report of the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute/American Heart Association Conference on Scientific Issues Related to Definition
TLDR
Although ATP III identified CVD as the primary clinical outcome of the metabolic syndrome, most people with this syndrome have insulin resistance, which confers increased risk for type 2 diabetes, when diabetes becomes clinically apparent, CVD risk rises sharply. Expand
Risks for all-cause mortality, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes associated with the metabolic syndrome: a summary of the evidence.
TLDR
These estimates suggest that the population-attributable fraction for the metabolic syndrome, as it is currently conceived, is approximately 6-7% for all-cause mortality, 12-17% for cardiovascular disease, and 30-52% for diabetes. Expand
Epidemiology and treatment of the metabolic syndrome
TLDR
It is found that moderate lifestyle interventions in persons with impaired glucose tolerance, a condition related to the metabolic syndrome, decreased the incidence of type 2 diabetes by 58% and some drugs may also prevent diabetes. Expand

Definitions of the insulin resistance syndrome: the 1st World Congress on the Insulin Resistance Syndrome.
TLDR
Richard Pasternak discussed the deliberations that led the National Cholesterol Education Program Adult Treatment Panel (ATP) III to propose a new definition of the metabolic syndrome and the impact of this proposal in heightening awareness of the insulin resistance syndrome (IRS). Expand
Effectiveness of therapeutic lifestyle changes in patients with hypertension, hyperlipidemia, and/or hyperglycemia.
TLDR
The findings clearly show that many patients who have conventional risk factors for coronary heart disease can achieve goal levels without medications within 12 weeks of initiating therapeutic lifestyle changes and refute the notion that intensive lifestyle intervention is not worth the effort.
