Adiposity indices as predictors for metabolic syndrome in postmenopausal women

Asim Alaaeldin Osman, Salah Eldeen Dafalla.

Abstract
Background: The metabolic syndrome (MS) is a clinical syndrome of metabolic abnormalities that have been associated with many cardiometabolic disorders that increase the rate of morbidity and mortality.

Aims and Objectives: The objective of the present study was to examine the predictive power of many adiposity indices as an accurate predictor for MS in postmenopausal Sudanese women.

Materials and Methods: This cross-sectional study involved 290 postmenopausal women. Fasting blood glucose and lipid profile, blood pressures, and relevant anthropometric indices were determined using standard protocols.

Results: Lipid accumulation product (LAP), visceral adiposity index (VAI), body adiposity index, waist circumference (WC), hip circumference, and body mass index were significantly higher in women with MS. The receiver operating characteristic curve results revealed that the threshold values of 56.2, 90.5, and 1.4 for LAP, WC, and VAI, respectively, provide sensitive and specific predictors for MS in postmenopausal women.

Conclusion: LAP, WC, and VAI regarded as sensitive and specific predictors for MS in postmenopausal Sudanese women.

Key words: Menopause; Metabolic Syndrome; Adiposity Indices
