Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Percent of maintenance patients with at least three risk factors of metabolic syndrome [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Enrollment: 108
Study Start Date: August 2010
Study Completion Date: December 2010
Primary Completion Date: December 2010 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Detailed Description:

Risk factors for metabolic syndrome will be collected for each consented patient. They include elevated serum triglycerides, reduced HDL cholesterol, hypertension, elevated fasting blood sugar concentration and abdominal obesity. The investigator will measure waist circumference of each consented patient in a secure area according to standardized procedures. The other data is available from the patient's medical record.
