The Association Between the Metabolic Syndrome and Metabolic Syndrome Score and Urine Microalbumin/Urine Creatinine Ratio and Glomerular Filtration Rate in Korean Adults With Obesity.J Ren Nutr 2017; 27(4):249-255JR
This study assessed the association between metabolic syndrome (MetS) and metabolic syndrome score (MSS) and the levels of urine microalbumin-urine creatinine ratio (uACR) and glomerular filtration rate (GFR) in Korean adults with obesity.
Analyses of data obtained during the 2012 Korean National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey were restricted to that obtained from 1,612 adults aged ≥20 years with obesity.
After adjusting for relevant variables (excluding age), uACR levels were positively associated with MetS (P < .001) and MSS (P < .001), and GFR levels were inversely associated with MetS (P < .001) and MSS (P < .001). However, when further adjusting for age, uACR levels were positively associated with MetS (P < .001) and MSS (P < .001) levels, but GFR levels were not associated with MetS (P = .632) and MSS (P = .275) levels.
MetS and MSS were positively associated with uACR levels in Korean adults with obesity, but were not associated with GFR levels.
