Title: Continuous metabolic syndrome score (siMS) enables quantification of severity of cardiometabolic affliction in individuals not presenting with metabolic syndrome
Author: K. Sebekova, J. Sebek

Abstract: Assessment of degree of cardiometabolic affliction in subjects not presenting with metabolic syndrome (MS) yet, would be helpful in the management of preventive health maintenance.
OBJECTIVES: To evaluate continuous metabolic syndrome score (siMS) in estimation of severity of cardiometabolic affliction in individuals not presenting with MS.
METHODS: We analyzed data from 3166 volunteers (56 % females) aged ≥ 16 years. siMS score was calculated as waist/height/0.5 + fasting plasma glucose (FPG)/5.6 + triacylglycerols (TAG)/1.7 + systolic blood pressure (SBP)/130 – high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C)/1.02 (males) or 1.28 (females). In siMS quintiles, numbers of individuals presenting with 0-to-5 MS components were calculated. MS was considered as the presence of any 3 out of its 5 components.
RESULTS: 33 % of participants without MS scored ≥ 4th quintile; 13 % of those free from MS components; 49 % of participants presenting with 1, and 83 % of those displaying 2 MS components. 11 % of individuals presented with MS, all but 1 displayed siMS within the 2 upper quintiles.
CONCLUSIONS: Considerable proportion of individuals without MS presented with siMS in range displayed by individuals presenting with MS. SiMS might be useful in estimation of severity of cardiometabolic affliction prior to manifestation of MS, to identify individuals requiring early intervention to counteract developing pathological processes (Tab. 1, Ref. 21).
