The purpose of this study was to determine the frequency of metabolic syndrome according to the two definitions: NCEP-ATP III and IDF 2005 and to analyze their differences in a population in Marrakech, Morocco. The study was carried out at Ibn Zohr hospital in Marrakech. The body mass index (BMI) was calculated to assess the degree of obesity of each subject. The blood parameters were measured by an appropriate biochemistry automaton. The diagnosis of metabolic syndrome was made according to the definitions of NCEP-ATP III and IDF 2005. All statistical analyzes were performed using SPSS software. A total of 300 subjects participated in the study, including 57.3% of women and 42.7% of men, with a sex ratio of 0.74. The mean age of our population was 51.6 ± 13.42 years. According to NCEP-ATP III, 79 of the participants (26.3%) had the metabolic syndrome, with a predominance of women: 60 women (20.0%) and 19 men (6.3%); according to the IDF, 139 or (46.3%) of the participants had MS, in which 31.0% were women and 15.3% were men. Waist circumference and hyperglycemia were the two predominant criteria according to both definitions. The study showed that all criteria were statistically associated with the presence of MS. The metabolic syndrome is common in our population regardless of the definition criteria used. The implementation of prevention strategies and the encouragement of a healthy lifestyle will minimize serious health problems in Marrakech city.
