Abstract

This study analyzed the prevalence of metabolic syndrome (MetS) and evaluated the factors associated with MetS. Subjects numbered 2,213 adults who participated in the health screening survey. Results show that the prevalence of MetS, Risk-MetS, and Non-MetS was 28.2%, 44.9%, and 26.9% respectively. Factors influencing variables were age, gender, history of hypertension and diabetes mellitus, abdominal obesity, high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, triglyceride, blood pressure, fasting blood glucose, alcohol consumption, and level of physical activity. Community health nurses should plan to develop MetS management programs that target Mets or Risk-MetS groups to promote health.
