Studies have highlighted the association between insulin resistance (IR) and several cardiovascular (CV) risk factors, including hypertension (HTN), obesity, dyslipidemia (i.e. high triglyceride and low HDL-cholesterol) and glucose intolerance, in a cluster known as the metabolic syndrome (MS). There are few data on the frequency of the MS and dyslipidemia in developing countries, and none in South America. To estimate the prevalence of the MS and its components in Zulia State, Venezuela, and… 
Prevalence of the metabolic syndrome, insulin resistance index, leptin and thyroid hormone levels in the general population of Merida (Venezuela).
TLDR
While studies are being conducted about the different definitions of the MetSyn in Venezuela, it is recommended to analyzing and publishing local research data with all the available criteria so as to allow comparisons with the results already reported in the literature.

Metabolic syndrome in individuals in a rural community
TLDR
MS equally affects both rural and urban areas, but in Venezuela the prevalence is higher in urban plains and male gender is also the most affected and diabetes mellitus and hypertension are the most frequent family history.

TLDR
NCEP-ATPIII criteria for the diagnosis of MetS and this criterion reflected equal importance to the every variable and showed a good agreement between the different criteria used.
Dyslipidemias and obesity in Mexico
TLDR
TC concentrations from the study in Mexico were similar to those found for Mexican-Americans and the prevalence of HC was slightly lower than the one reported in the US; however, obesity increased ~1.4 times the probability ratio of having HC among women and 1.9 among men.

The metabolic syndrome: prevalence and associated risk factor findings in the US population from the Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, 1988-1994.
TLDR
Older age, postmenopausal status, Mexican American ethnicity, higher body mass index, current smoking, low household income, high carbohydrate intake, no alcohol consumption, and physical inactivity were associated with increased odds of the metabolic syndrome.
Cardiovascular morbidity and mortality associated with the metabolic syndrome.
TLDR
The WHO definition of the metabolic syndrome identifies subjects with increased cardiovascular morbidity and mortality and offers a tool for comparison of results from diferent studies.
The Metabolic Syndrome: More Than the Sum of Its Parts?
TLDR
The diagnosis of the MetSyn appears to identify substantial additional cardiovascular risk above and beyond the individual risk factors, and the clinical diagnosis may be a valuable tool for identification of the elusive high-risk patient.
The metabolic syndrome and total and cardiovascular disease mortality in middle-aged men.
TLDR
Cardiovascular disease and all-cause mortality are increased in men with the metabolic syndrome, even in the absence of baseline CVD and diabetes, according to the Kuopio Ischaemic Heart Disease Risk Factor Study.

TLDR
A report on the metabolic syndrome from Iran shows a high prevalence of this disorder, and efforts on promoting healthy diets, physical activity, and blood pressure control must be undertaken.
Metabolic Syndrome With and Without C-Reactive Protein as a Predictor of Coronary Heart Disease and Diabetes in the West of Scotland Coronary Prevention Study
TLDR
A modified NCEP metabolic syndrome definition predicts CHD events, and, more strikingly, new-onset diabetes, and thus helps identify individuals who may receive particular benefit from lifestyle measures to prevent these diseases.
Prevalence of insulin resistance syndrome in southwestern France and its relationship with inflammatory and hemostatic markers.
TLDR
IRS is relatively common in residents of Southwestern France and is related to a deleterious increase in hemostatic and inflammatory parameters.
The metabolic syndrome in the West Bank population: an urban-rural comparison.
TLDR
Although no significant differences were found in the prevalences of hypertension and diabetes between the two populations, other components of the metabolic syndrome, namely elevated triglycerides, low HDL cholesterol, and overall obesity, were more prevalent in the urban population.
Components of the "metabolic syndrome" and incidence of type 2 diabetes.
TLDR
Identification of four unique factors with different associations with incidence of diabetes suggests that the correlations among these variables reflect distinct metabolic processes, about which substantial information may be lost in the attempt to combine them into a single entity.
