Aim: To investigate the relationship between the clustering of metabolic syndrome (MetS) components and non-high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (non-HDL-C) levels in Japanese obese boys.
Methods: Subjects were 58 obese boys aged 12.0±2.6 years, which were categorized into three subgroups: abdominal obesity, pre-MetS (abdominal obesity+1 component), and MetS (abdominal obesity+2 or more components).
Results: Sixteen (27.6%) and 32 (55.2%) of the obese boys were diagnosed as pre-MetS and MetS, respectively. The mean non-HDL-C level in total subjects was 139.0±36.4 mg/dl and that in boys with abdominal obesity, pre-MetS, and MetS were 112.9±34.4, 135.4±37.9, and 149.0±32.6 mg/dl, respectively (p=0.0183, ANOVA).
Conclusions: Japanese obese boys with MetS exhibited elevated non-HDL-C levels, suggesting that they may have a higher risk for the development of atherosclerotic diseases.
