According to NCEP ATPIII1, 768 patients (94.8%) had metabolic syndrome. A significant relation was observed between abdominal obesity and sex, hypertension, decreased HDL and metabolic syndrome. (P‹ 0.01) However, there was no significant relationship between abdominal obesity, age and high TG (P‹0.01) Conclusion: The results of this study indicated that obesity had the strongest qualitative relation with metabolic syndrome, indicating the need to it control appropriately in diabetic patients.
