Metabolic Syndrome Prevalence and Cardiovascular Risk Assessment in HIV-Positive Men with and without Antiretroviral Therapy

HIV infection treatment is a lifelong process that is associated with chronic diseases. In Taiwan, we investigated the incidence and predictors of metabolic syndrome and cardiovascular disease with individual antiretroviral drugs use among HIV-infected men. In group-1 and group-2, the highest triglyceride was 15. 6% and 36. 6%, respectively; however, lower high-density lipoprotein in group-1 and group-2 was 76. 7% versus 51%, respectively. The prevalence of MetS in the treatment-experienced group was lower than that of the treatment-experienced group; a high TG level resulted in an elevated MetS prevalence in the treatment-experienced group. In comparison, the cardiovascular risk of FRS in the treatment-nave group was higher than that of the treatment-experienced group, which may have arisen from the low HDL level. Although group-1 participants are at a higher risk of developing CVDs, in group-2, an increasing TG level in PIs users posed a greater risk of CVDs, an increasing TG level in PIs users raised the risk of CVDs in the group-2, an increasing risk of CVDs.

Comparison of metabolic syndrome prevalence using four different definitions – a population-based study in Finland

Metabolic syndrome is a public health issue in Europe that affects both age groups. Abstract Background Metabolic syndrome is a public health issue in Europe. This research was designed to compare four popular MetS definitions in the Finnish adult population, to assess their acceptance, and to assess the effect of the definition's choice of MetS on MetS' prevalence. According to the four categories, measured results on anthropometrics, blood pressure, and biomarkers were used alongside questionnaire results to group participants into the MetS categories. The IDF vs. JIS vs. JIS vs. NCEP-ATP III was almost flawless for JIS vs. JIS, with good for JIS vs. NCEP-ATP III, moderate for IDF vs. NCEP-ATP III, WHO vs. IDF, and weak for WHO vs. JIS. Conclusions: There were major differences between the observed prevalence of MetS in Finnish men and women using different MetS metrics.

The metabolic syndrome: prevalence, associated factors, and impact on survival among older persons in rural Bangladesh.

Objectives: To determine whether the prevalence of the metabolic syndrome among older people in rural Bangladesh differs by age, sex, literacy, marital status, nutritional status, and socioeconomic status, as well as measuring the effect of MetS on survival. Methods The study was based on 456 people who were living in a rural area of Bangladesh between July 2003 and March 2004. The research consisted of 456 people. MetS was established following the NCEP III criteria, with minor changes; random blood glucose level 7. 0 mmol/L; hypertriglyceridemia; low level of HDL-cholesterol; and BMI 25. 0 kg/m. Findings The overall incidence of MetS was 19. 5%, 20. 8% in women and 18. 0% in men, with 19. 5% in women and 18. 0% in men. According to our results, there is a need for screening services involving the metabolic syndrome in order to prevent diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
