Özet

Background: The International Diabetes Federation (IDF) defines metabolic syndrome among children. In addition to the abdominal obesity (waist circumference 90 percentile of locally representative sample), the risk criteria for metabolic syndrome includes elevated blood pressure, hypertriglyceridemia, low high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) levels, and elevated fasting glucose. In this study, we compared the association of anthropometric indices with metabolic syndrome risk criteria in 9-year-old children.
