Introduction: The aims of this study were the estimation and comparison
of cardiometabolic risk factors and the prevalence of Metabolic Syndrome
(MetS) among pre-menopausal (pre-M) and post-menopausal (post-M)
Methods: This study was conducted on total of 664 (pre-M: 378, post-M:
286) women, aged between 30–64 years. Body weight, waist circumference (WC) were taken from all participants, body mass index (BMI) and
waist hip ratio (WHR) were calculated, and lipid profiles were investigated.
Results: The mean ages of pre-M women and post-M women were found
42.1 ± 4.50 and 56.2 ± 4.19 years, respectively (p < 0.001). Mean WC,
WHR, systolic arterial pressure (SAP) and diastolic arterial pressure
(DAP) levels were significantly higher in post-M women as compared to
pre-M women (p < 0.001). The mean fasting plasma glucose (FPG), low
density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C), triglycerides (TG) and total cholesterol/high density lipoprotein cholesterol (TC/HDL-C) were significantly lower in pre-M women (p < 0.05) and TC was significantly higher
in post-M women (p < 0.001). There was found a significant increase of
prevalence of the MetS among the post-menopausal women in both IDF
and NCEP ATPIII criterias.
Conclusion: Menopause is an important risk factor for metabolic syndrome. MetS was more prevalent among postmenopausal women than
among premenopausal women by both criterias.
