Abstract:
The metabolic syndrome (Mets) is one of the key feature in the pathogenesis of many non communicable diseases. With changing lifestyle and urbanization, the prevalence of metabolic syndrome is increasing across all ages. Scanty information is available regarding the prevalence and various risk factors of Mets among the male youth population of the North East students migrating for Higher Education. The aim of the study is to determine the prevalence of metabolic syndrome among the college male youth (15-29) using International Diabetes Federation (IDF, 2005) guidelines. A cross sectional study design was used to assess the prevalence of metabolic syndrome among college going male youth belonging to the North East Indian States studying in The MS University of Baroda. Anthropometric screening was done for 94 male students. Blood test was carried out to collect information regarding parameters of metabolic syndrome i.e glycemic status, Lipid Profile & Blood pressure measurements. The prevalence of MetS was found 22.34% among the subjects. Of the subjects having MetS, 95% had BMI≥23. Out of total subjects, 19.14% had three components and 3.19% had four components of the metabolic syndrome. As the subjects with metabolic syndrome was greater than 10%, interventions should be focused primarily on intensive lifestyle management to avert the development of diabetes and CVD during the productive years of life.
