Abstract :

INTRODUCTION: The recognition of the existence of Reaven Syndorme or metabolic syndrome has developed over the last two decades, following the description of an insulin resistance syndrome or syndrome X in 1988.Depending on the definition used, the metabolic syndrome may include measures of general obesity (as reflected by BMI), central obesity (as reflected by WC or WHR), dyslipidemia (low HDL–C and / or high Triglyceride levels), hyperglycemia, high blood pressure and resistance to the action of Insulin. The increasing prevalence of obesity across the world will result in increasing prevalence of metabolic syndrome. The increasing prevalence of metabolic syndrome increases the risk for developing diabetes and cardiovascular disease. This study was conducted in hundred patients who presented with either CAD or CVA to know the prevalence of metabolic syndrome and its individual components as per NCEP: ATP III 2001 criteria.
