Metabolic syndrome (MetS) is becoming a worldwide epidemic as a result of the increased prevalence of obesity and a sedentary lifestyle, and the prevalence of MetS in the adult population is relatively high. Many studies showed the high prevalence of metabolic syndrome among postmenopausal women. The purpose of our study was to investigate of quercetine’ influence on proinflammatory cytokines level in blood of postmenopausal women with MetS. The 39 postmenopausal women with MetS were referred to the study, and divided into 2 groups: 1st – control group (patients with MetS which treated by basic medication: RAAS blockers, acetylsalicylic acid and statin); 2nd – additionally used quercetine in dose 40 mg twice a day 30 min before meals. Quercetine is strong antiinflammation medicine which decreases IL-1, IL-6, Ltr B4 levels in blood serum.
