Abstract [en]

Aims: To compare the ability of definitions of Metabolic Syndrome (MetS) in the predictionof type 2 diabetes.Methods: We examined 4756 subjects in an Iranian population who were non-diabetic atbaseline. After 3.6 years, 188 individuals developed diabetes.Results: Impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) and MetS definitions predicted type 2 diabetes withodds ratios ranging from 3.7 to 11.9 (all P < 0.05) although IGT had the highest area under thereceiver operator characteristic (aROC) curve than all the MetS definitions. Reduction ofglucose in the National Cholesterol Education Program (NCEP) definition of the MetSincreased diabetes prediction, but adding the family history of diabetes did not changeaROC curves. The International Diabetes Federation (IDF) definition had the highest sensitivityand false positive rate (72.2 and 35.1%, respectively) and the WHO definition had thelowest ones (54.8 and 9.2%, respectively) for predicting diabetes. The positive predictivevalues of all definitions were low (8.6–19.7%) but their negative predictive values werearound 98%.Conclusions: In Iranian population, the MetS was inferior to IGT for predicting type 2diabetes. The NCEP definition of the MetS with reduced level of glucose (not includingthe family history of diabetes) and IDF definition predicted type 2 diabetes at least as well asWHO definition.
