A Study of Serum Ferritin Activity in Metabolic Syndrome

Gaurav Sharma [6] | Shivani Bansal


Abstract: 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
