Brief Summary:
The study is a survey to answer the specific question, "What is the prevalence of metabolic syndrome in maintenance hemodialysis patients?" Metabolic syndrome is a cluster of conditions that increase an individual's risk for developing cardiovascular disease and diabetes.

Condition or disease
Metabolic Syndrome

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.
