In Asia, the prevalence of metabolic syndrome have been dramatically increased. Therefore, the investigators intend to the collect the blood sample, laboratory, anthropometric, and body composition parameters prospectively to examine the risk factors of metabolic syndrome. Furthermore, the investigators will collect the data of carotid IMT and branchial ankle pulse wave velocity to clarify the metabolic risk factors of atherosclerosis.
The impact of various cardiovascular risk factors (inflammatory markers, hepatokines, adipokines, body composition parameters) for developing metabolic syndrome in prospective design [ Time Frame: 36months ]
Secondary Outcome Measures :
The relationship of various cardiovascular risk factors (inflammatory markers, hepatokines, adipokines, body composition parameters) with metabolic syndrome and atherosclerosis measured by baPWV and carotid IMT in cross sectional design [ Time Frame: 36months ]
