Background: Metabolic syndrome includes abdominal obesity, diabetes type 2, hypertension, dyslipidemia, derangements of fibrinolysis, and atherosclerosis. Since abdominal obesity is one of the major components of the insulin resistance syndrome (IRS), an attempt was made to evaluate the interrelationships between the magnitude of obesity and the components of the syndrome.
