Abstract

Objective: Metabolic syndrome is the cluster of vascular risk factors including insulin resistance, elevated blood
pressure, hyperlipidemia, and obesity. Metabolic syndrome is strongly associated with cardiovascular and
cerebrovascular disease. The aim of this study is to find out association between stroke and metabolic syndrome in
our population.
Methods: In this observational study, a total number of fifty randomly selected patients were studied from July
2009 to December 2009 at Medicine ward of Dhaka Medical College Hospital. Definition of metabolic syndrome
was taken from the guidelines by the National Cholesterol Education Program Adult Treatment Panel III.
Results: Among the study population 46% had metabolic syndrome. This study estimated that Ischaemic stroke is
more common among metabolic syndrome patients (65.2%), but patient without metabolic syndrome had more
haemorrhagic stroke (55.6%).Only 12% patient was found obese. With or without metabolic syndrome most of the
patient had elevated TG (64%) and raised blood pressure (64%).
Conclusion: Without obesity, metabolic syndrome is an important risk factor for cerebrovascular disease. Majority
of the patients with metabolic syndrome present as ischemic stroke.
