CAMARILLO-ROMERO, Eneida et al. Difficulties in the classification of metabolic syndrome: The example of adolescents in Mexico. Salud pública Méx [online]. 2010, vol.52, n.6, pp. 524-527. ISSN 0036-3634.

OBJECTIVE. Determine the difference between the National Cholesterol Education Program Adult Treatment Panel (ATPIII) definition of the diagnosis of metabolic syndrome (MS) in Mexican adolescents and that by the International Diabetes Federation (IDF). MATERIAL AND METHODS. We conducted a cross-sectional study of 575 adolescents aged 14 to 16 years using the student's t test, chi square and Spearman correlation. RESULTS. The prevalence of MS was higher by ATPIII (18.6%) than by IDF (8.2%) (p <0.001) and there was a concordance of 41.1%. CONCLUSIONS. There is a statistical difference in the prevalence of MS depending on the definition.
