Resumen

FONTE MEDINA, Nohary et al. Hypertension, hypertriglyceridemia and obesity the main components in metabolic syndrome. Pinar del Rio. Rev Ciencias Médicas [online]. 2008, vol.12, n.1, pp.142-150. ISSN 1561-3194.

Aimed at describing the distribution and frequency of the components of the metabolic syndrome in a group of patients presenting dislipoproteinemia an observational and cross-sectional study was conducted with 100 patients attending to the Dislipoproteinemia office during July 2002-December 2003. General characteristics such as: age, sex, family medical history, personal features and associated diseases were described. The values of glycemia, uric acid, fibrinogen and triglycerides were determined. The method used to perform the analysis of frequency and comparison of these values was chi-squared (95 % of confidence). Being the metabolic syndrome more frequent in female sex (58%) in the group of 40-59 years old. Hypertriglyceridemia (100%), obesity and hypertension (78% for both) and diabetes mellitus type II (44%) were the most frequent diseases. An association of three o more components in 88% of the patients was observed having a higher incidence in female sex in the group of 40-59 years old; concluding that a special-medical care must be offered to this group of patients in order to reduce the severe consequences of this syndrome.
