Metabolic Syndrome among Obese and Overweight Adults among the Uttarakhand Kumaon Population

Non-communicable diseases like stroke, cancer, heart disease, chronic lung diseases, and diabetes are together responsible for around 70% of all deaths across the world. This mets is one of the main reasons for increased cardiovascular mortality and morbidity, regardless of age, sex, or family history of diabetes. Obese and overweight people are at more risk of developing these chronic illnesses. The aim and objectives of this research were to evaluate the incidence of Metabolic syndrome among the Uttarakhand population and the correlation of obesity with mets and its constituents. A cross-sectional study was led in Uttarakhand – Haldwani (150 males and 150 females) aged 18-65 years. The National Cholesterol Education Program- Adult Treatment Panel procedures were used for the determination of risk factors and measurements. According to the NCEP ATP III guidelines, the incidence of mets among obese subjects was around 53.8%. In males and females, it also differs with a percentage of 55.1 and 59 respectively. Considering the mets prevalence is higher among the individuals having fallen under the obese class, health management strategies were needed to reduce the illnesses and the death rate in the Uttarakhand adult population.
