ABSTRACT

Objective: To determine the Frequency of Metabolic Syndrome in
patients with Ischemic Heart Disease presenting to OPD (outpatients
Department) on routine follow up. Methods: This study was done in
outpatients department, Punjab Institute of Cardiology (PIC) Lahore,
from December 2016 to March 2017. 76 Ischemic heart disease
patients, male and female, coming for routine follow up were screened
and risk factors like Obesity, Triglyceridemia, Decreased HDL,
Hypertension and Diabetes were analyzed. Result: 75% of total IHD
patients were suffering from Metabolic Syndrome. Among these 53 %
were males while 47% were females. 91% of the total obese were having Metabolic
Syndrome. 88% of the total patients with Triglyceridemia were having Metabolic syndrome.
84.% of the total patients with low HDL values were suffering from Metabolic Syndrome.
80.3 % of the total Hypertensive IHD patients were having Metabolic syndrome. 85.7% of
total patients with increased fasting blood glucose levels were suffering from Metabolic
syndrome. Role of Gender, Occupation, Educational status, Marital status, Smoking,
Exercise, Stress and Fast food restaurant visits were insignificant in determining the
Metabolic syndrome. Conclusion: A high frequency (75 %) of Metabolic Syndrome in
Ischemic Heart Disease patients take us to a conclusion that presence of metabolic syndrome
is an important risk factor of IHD. Also, Obesity proves to be the most important component
of Metabolic Syndrome with a frequency of 91 %.

Keywords: Metabolic syndrome, Ischemic Heart Disease.
