Prevalence of Some Factors Associated to Metabolic Syndrome at Mexico Hospital
Abstract: Objective: To determine associated factors to metabolic syndrome in the populations that partici-pated in the Mexico hospital health fair in February 2007. Materials and Methods: A retrospective, descriptive transverse and analytic study of the population interviewed during the Health Fair held from February 19 to 22. A descriptive analysis was done as well as a single-variable and mul-tivariate analysis of the main variables. Results: San Jose Province reported a higher percentage of cases with 40.7%, followed by Heredia with 26.0% and Alajuela with 24.9%. In the case of Lemon, the percentage was 0.4% only. Most of the interviewed ones are Costa Ricans, representing 94.0%. The female predominance was notorious with 72.6%. The single-variable and multivariate analysis presented an association among blood pressure, glucose, besides of the body mass index related to the metabolic syndrome. Conclusion: The blood pressure, the glucose, and the body mass index are to be considered as associated factors to metabolic syndrome.
