Metabolic Syndrome and Leptin Level Associated With Fructose Consumption in Spain
A Food Frequency Questionnaire (FFQ), will be provided to 800 adults to assess overall fructose intake and this will be related to a number of features related to the metabolic syndrome, including serum leptin, characteristic features of metabolic syndrome (body mass index, waist circumference, plasma lipids, blood pressure, HOMA index,fasting glucose and fasting insulin levels) and other as: CRP, fibrinogen, homocysteine and uric acid.
|Study Design:||Observational Model: Ecologic or Community
Time Perspective: Cross-Sectional
|Official Title:||Prevalence of Cardiovascular Risk Factors in Minorca - Spain|
- Serum leptin levels as it relates to fructose intake [ Time Frame: Epidemiological association ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- Relationship of metabolic syndrome features with fructose intake. This includes measuring all 5 components of metabolic syndrome, assessing insulin resistance by HOMA, and measuring some markers of inflammation (CRP, fibrinogen, homocysteine) [ Time Frame: Epidemiological ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
Biospecimen Retention: Samples Without DNA
