Abstract

Background. The impact of the various components of metabolic syndrome MetS on chronic kidney disease has been conflicting. We aim to investigate the association between MetS and microalbuminuria and identify the major contributing components of MetS that result in microalbuminuria in the Chinese aged population. Methods. A total of 674 adults aged 55–98 years males: 266; mean age: years were studied. MetS was defined by the 2004 Chinese Diabetes Society criteria and microalbuminuria by urine albumin-creatinine ratio UACR ≥3 mg-mmoL. Results. The prevalence of microalbuminuria was gradually increased with increasing number of MetS components . In multivariate regression, after adjusting for age and sex, MetS was the strongest correlate of microalbuminuria OR = 1.781, 95% CI = 1.226–2.587; followed by the fasting plasma glucose FPG OR = 1.217, 95% CI = 1.044–1.092; , systolic blood pressure SBP OR = 1.011, 95% CI = 1.107–1.338; , and high-density lipoprotein cholesterol HDL-C OR = 0.576, 95% CI = 0.348–0.953; . Conclusions. MetS is independently associated with microalbuminuria in the Chinese aged population. Elevated FPG is the most predominant component of metabolic syndrome associated with microalbuminuria followed by elevated SBP and reduced HDL-C.
