A Study of Serum Ferritin Activity in Metabolic Syndrome

Gaurav Sharma, Shivani Bansal

Background Patients with metabolic syndrome (MS) have above-average risk of developing atherosclerosis and cardiovascular disease. Inflammation plays a key role in the development of atherosclerosis. High levels of the acute phase reactants C-reactive protein (CRP) and ferritin have been reported to correlate with various components of MS. Patients and methods The, ferritin, glucose, triglycerides, HDL-cholesterol and total cholesterol serum CRP concentrations of 25 controls and 100 cases were determined, together with relevant anthropometric parameters.. MS was diagnosed using the IDF criteria. Results. Serum ferritin levels were higher among patients with triglyceride concentrations >150 mg/dl than in those with lower levels (76.8 vs 40.1 ng/ml, P
