Abstract

syndrome (MS) and diabetes mellitus (DM) are risk factors for cardiovascular disease. But influence of MS in presence of DM on cardiovascular risk factors is less described. This study evaluated the combined effect of MS and DM on blood pressure (BP) heart rate (HR) and lipids. In 39 subjects with MS alone (group A) and 38 subjects with MS and DM (group B), plasma total cholesterol, triglycerides, low density and high density lipoprotein - cholesterol , fasting blood sugar, BP and HR were noted . The mean HR, diastolic blood pressure (DBP) of group B was higher compared to group A (p = 0.0345; 0.027 respectively). Mean total cholesterol, triglycerides and low density lipoproteins of group B was higher compared to group A (p = 0.0155, 0.033, 0.0055 respectively) In conclusion, MS in presence of DM causes raise in DBP, low-density lipoprotein and triglycerides
