Resumé

Few population-based data exist on the prevalence of the metabolic syndrome (MS) its components, and its association with subclinical inflammation and insulin resistance among patients newly diagnosed with type 2 diabetes (T2D).
We examined the MS according to IDF criteria by linkage primary data (waist circumference, fasting blood glucose, and high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (CRP)) with variables from the Danish Diabetes Database for Adults (blood pressure and lipids) and a nationwide prescription database (antilipidemic, antihypertensive, and hypoglycemic drugs).
We included 525 newly diagnosed T2D patients (median age 60 years, 60% men), whereof 89.0% had MS. Age and gender were similar in MS and non-MS patients. Waist circumference was elevated in 98.1% of MS vs. 34.5% of non-MS patients (prevalence ratio 2.84; 95% CI: 2.49-3.20). Most MS patients had elevated blood pressure (systolic >=130, or diastolic >=85, or antihypertensive drug): 94.4% vs. 55.2% in non-MS patients (prevalence ratio 1.71; 95% CI: 1.48-1.94). Fasting blood glucose was increased in nearly all MS and non-MS patients. Triglycerides were elevated in 48.6% of MS and 3.4% of non-MS patients (prevalence ratio 14.10; 95% CI: 12.73-15.46). HDL-cholesterol was reduced in 33.6% of MS and 0.0% of non-MS patients. Increased C-peptide levels >= 300 pmol/L was more common in MS than non-MS patients (96.8% vs. 77.6%, p=0.0005). 23.1% of the MS patients was previous hospital-diagnosed with cardiovascular disease vs. 0% in non-MS. The median CRP was 2.40 mg/L (quartiles 1.00-5.10) in MS patients vs. 1.20 mg/L (quartiles 0.60-3.50) in non-MS patients (p=0.006)
89% of the newly diagnosed T2D patients have the MS, with 90% having elevated waist circumference, blood pressure and blood glucose, and <50% having elevated triglycerides and reduced HDL-cholesterol. Elevated C-peptide levels are common in T2D patients with MS and their CRP level and risk of previous cardiovascular disease is higher than in non-MS patients.
