A study on the prevalence of metabolic syndrome and its components among adults aged 18 –49 years in an urban area of West Bengal

Conclusions: This research revealed the high prevalence of MetS and its components in the community. Effective primordial and primary level of prevention along with prevailing secondary or tertiary level of prevention should have been implemented to curtail the epidemic of MetS.

This study aimed to estimate MetS status and its associations with geography, economic development, birth weight, and parental education of Chinese children and adolescents. METHODS: Data were derived from 15,045 participants aged 7-18 years across seven Chinese provinces. Physical measurement and blood tests were conducted to assess the five classical MetS components described by the International Diabetes Federation, including abdominal obesity (the essential component), high blood pressure, low high-density cholesterol (HDL-C), high triglyceride, and elevated fasting glucose (FG). Logistic regression was adopted to ...

AbstractAims/hypothesisThe aim of this study was to investigate the concordance of dysglycaemia (prediabetes or diabetes) and cardiometabolic traits between women with a history of gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) and their spouses.MethodsUsing hospital medical records, women with GDM (diagnosed between 2012 and 2016) and their spouses were invited to participate in the study and to attend a scheduled hospital visit in a fasting state. Sociodemographic, anthropometric and medical data were collected, and a 75  g OGTT with serum insulin estimation, HbA1c measurement and fasting lipid profile were performed at the vi...

In conclusion, the impaired in situ activity of RyR2 may also account for the poor overall cardiac outcome reported in MetS patients; hence, the SERCA pump and RyR2 are both attractive potential targets for future therapies. Introduction Metabolic syndrome (MetS) is a cluster of biochemical and physiological risk factors for cardiovascular disease and diabetes mellitus type 2 (DM2); it represents a severe public health problem around the world (Alberti et al., 2009). Risk factors for MetS include obesity (particularly central obesity), elevated triglyceride (TG) levels, low high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL...

Metabolic syndrome (MS) is a constellation of risk factors, which, when not treated, leads to the development of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and coronary heart disease (CHD). It is a prevalent condition, which is associated with the growing epidemic of sedentary lifestyle[1]. MS is diagnosed when at least three out of five following risk factors are present: central obesity, elevated serum triglycerides, low HDL cholesterol concentrations, impaired fasting glucose and elevated systolic (SBP) or/and diastolic blood pressure (DBP)[2].

This article covers some of the advances of recent years in understanding the effects of varied forms of calorie restriction in humans. Efforts to quantify the results and find a good 80/20 point, at which most of the effects of longer and more stringent reductions in calorie intake are still evident, have resulted in practical outcomes. A number of quite interesting discoveries have been made along the way, such as the ability of longer fasting periods to clear out and replace damaged immune cells to some degree. The second phase of the Comprehensive Assessment of Long-term Effects of Reducing Intake of Energy (C...
