Title: Evaluation of association of hyperuricemia with metabolic syndrome and insulin resistance
Biography: Naveen Reddy Avula
The prevalence of hyperuricemia has been increasing in recent years, not only in advanced countries but also in developing countries, along with development of their economy. The metabolic syndrome is a growing public health problem in the world. Components of the metabolic syndrome including Diabetes, Hypertension, Dyslipidaemia. A total of 60 people with metabolic syndrome were included. Metabolic syndrome was defined as per ATP III guidelines. Hyperuricemia was defined with cutoff >6.8mg/dl in both men and women. Associated work up for metabolic syndrome and insulin resistance like FBS,FLP,FASTING INSULIN,SERUM URIC ACID was done. Blood pressure and anthropometric measurements including weight, height & waist circumferences were measured and BMI calculated. HOMA IR method was used for calculating insulin resistance. Logistic regression analysis was used to evaluate association of hyperuricemia with metabolic syndrome and insulin resistance.
