Abstract

Aims: People with metabolic syndrome are at increased risk for developing diabetes mellitus and cardiovascular disease. The present study aimed to assess the metabolic syndrome in type 2 diabetes and compare them with two used methods of diagnostic criteria in Gorgan. Methods: The study group included 293 type 2 diabetic patients whom referred to the Department of Diabetes Center in Golestan University of Medical Sciences (2011). The metabolic syndrome was determined according to ATPIII and IDF definitions. Results: According to ATPIII and IDF criteria, the frequency of metabolic syndrome was 75.42% and 76.79%, respectively. According to ATPIII, the mean triglycerides, body mass index, systolic blood pressure and diastolic blood pressure were higher in subjects with metabolic syndrome than subjects without metabolic syndrome. According to IDF, the mean triglycerides, body mass index and males' waist circumferences were higher in subjects with metabolic syndrome. Conclusions: 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 conclusion, it appears that the female need to change their life style in this area to halt the burden of cardiovascular complications in diabetic patients. © 2010 Diabetes India.
