Aim Purpose of the study was to clarify the prevalence and investigate risk factors of metabolic syndrome among primary health care clinic attendees at KFMMC, Dammam, KSA. Method This cross-sectional study was conducted at the King Fahd Military Medical Complex, Dhahran (KFMMC). IDF criteria were applied to evaluate metabolic syndrome. In inclusion criteria, at least 20 years old Saudi national was eligible to participate in the study. Results A total of 291 patients were included in the study. Male to female ratio is 1: 1.4. The overall prevalence of metabolic syndrome was 48.5 %. The prevalence of females (52.26) was greater, although not significant than that in males (44.12 %). Nearly three quarters (72.25 %) of the studied females had risk factors compared to two thirds (66.19 %) of the studied males.
