People with metabolic syndrome are at increased risk for developing diabetes mellitus. The present study aimed to assess the age related metabolic syndrome of patients diagnosed with type 2 diabetes mellitus. Data were collected from 293 diabetic subjects whom referred to the Department of Diabetes Center in Golestan University of Medical Sciences (2011). The metabolic syndrome was determined according to ATP III definition. In male and female subjects, the frequency of metabolic syndrome was 80.48% and 90.58%, respectively (P<0.05).The frequency of metabolic syndrome in ages 49-63 in female was higher than male. The frequency of metabolic syndrome was high in ages 34-48 and 49-63 years in both genders. This study showed that females were more affected than males. This may be due to the specific characteristics in the lifestyle changes between females and males diabetic patients among Gorgan inhabitants. Females are less educated in comparison with males diabetic. The majority of females with metabolic syndrome were householder. It seems that they do less physical activity at home. In Iran, females do less physical activity. Overweight and obesity were more seen between them. It seems that the female type 2 diabetic patients need to change their life style. © IDOSI Publications, 2012.
