Abstract

Introduction: Metabolic syndrome is a physiologic syndrome, characterized by increasing coronary heart disease risk factors like hypertension, diabetes, dyslipidemias and obesity. The aim of this study was to determine some metabolic syndrome factors and percent  age of body fat and its relationship with maximal oxygen consumption among patients with Coronary Artery Disease hospitalized in the Coronary Care Unit. Materials and Methods: This was descriptive correlative study that 90 coronary patients 40-80 years old participated by available sampling. We used Non-Exercise Test formulas for maximal oxygen consumption Predicting. Fasting blood sample used for TG, FBS, HDL-C. Percent body fat was estimated by measuring 4 skin fold thicknesses and blood pressure was measured. Results: The means of the factors of Metabolic syndrome and percent body fat were higher among females, compared to males. Decrease in HDL and increased blood pressure were the most prevalent among risk factors. There was a significant negative relationship between maximal oxygen consumption and body fat, FBS, SBP. Conclusion: According to our findings, the prevalence of risk factors of metabolic syndrome and percentage of body fat were high. With increase of body fat, FBS and SBP, all results of unhealthy lifestyles, maximal oxygen consumption is decreased.

Keywords: Metabolic Syndrome, Anthropometry, Maximal Oxygen Consumption
