Metabolic syndrome is associated with increased risk for cardiovascular disease and all-cause mortality.1,2 A previous study reported a prevalence of 33% in adults, which remained stable from 2007 to 2012.3 Understanding current trends in metabolic syndrome prevalence may help identify patients who would benefit from improved screening and optimization of cardiovascular risk profiles. We provide an updated analysis of metabolic syndrome prevalence through 2016.
