Background: Metabolic syndrome is a critical health concern associated with an elevated risk of chronic health problems including cardiovascular disease and diabetes. There are shreds of evidence that novel inflammatory ratios including neutrophil-to-lymphocyte, platelet-to-lymphocyte and lymphocyte-to-monocyte ratios serve as prognostic biomarkers for metabolic syndrome (MetS). This hypothesis was investigated in a cohort of the Iranian population.
Methods: selection of MetS + subjects was based on the National Cholesterol Education Program Adult Treatment Panel III criteria 3 (NCEP ATP 3). The control group consisted of participants negative for any of the five MetS criteria. Demographic and laboratory data were extracted from the Tabari cohort study.
Results: A total of 1930 subjects including 965 Mets positive and 965 MetS criteria negative participants were evaluated. Diabetes (84.8%), hypertension (48.9%), hypertriglyceridemia (81.7%), low HDL cholesterol (70.3%), and high waist circumference (78.9%) were observed in patients. There were no differences between NLR (1.66±0.71 vs. 1.69±0.72 P=0.42), LMR (11.23±3.13 vs. 11.30±11.99, P= 0.86) and PLR (113.85±68.67 vs 114.11±35.85, P=0.91) between case and control groups, respectively. Logistic regression analysis revealed no association between ratios and MetS risk even after adjusting for potential confounders including age, gender, living place, and BMI.
Conclusion: In a relatively large population from Northern Iran, no association was observed between CBC-derived inflammatory ratios and the presence of MetS.
