GROSS MELO, Fernando de Jesús et al. Characteristics of the components of the metabolic syndrome in patients with normal glucose and fasting disglicemia. Rev Med Hered [online]. 2018, vol.29, n.3, pp.137-146. ISSN 1018-130X.

Objectives: To investigate the characteristics of the components of metabolic syndrome (MS) among patients with normal glucose and fasting dysglycemia in the adult population of Trujillo. Methods: Secondary analysis of descriptive, comparative and relational type. Database was analyzed of MS previous study in adults of 20-79 years in Trujillo between 2010 to 2014, developed through medical screening campaigns cardiovascular risk factors. Group 1: MS included 127 adults with normal fasting glucose (NG). The group 2 included 110 adults with MS and dysglycemia fasting (DG). Student t test was used to compare means and the Z test to compare proportions, with a significance level of 0.05 and confidence intervals of 95%. Results: Serum levels of fasting triglyceride (TG) were (219.09 ± 101.83 mg/dl and 192.3 ± NG 103.17 mg/dl in DG, p= 0.004) and frequency of hypertriglyceridemia was (85.04% and 63.64% in NG in DG with p =0.000) and low HDL cholesterol (71.65% and 51.81% in NG in DG, p=0.002). Conclusions: Higher level of TG and increased frequency of hypertriglyceridemia and low HDL cholesterol in the NG group.
