Objective- Metabolic syndrome(MetS) is becoming a serious public health concern in many countries, including South Korea, which has faced remarkable changes in lifestyles and disease patterns in recent decades. We examined sex and socioeconomic status (SES)disparties in MetS and its components among South Koreans using recent, nationally representative data.
Research design and methods- Data from the 2007-2008 Korea National Health and Nutrition Examine the patterns of MetS components(defined using International Diabetes Federation criteria), and regression models were used to study the association of MetS with SES, indicated by education and family income levels.
Results-Mets prevalence increased with age, from 4.6% at age 19-29 years to 25.0% at age 50-65 years. More men had MetS than women (15.8% vs.11.6%), men had worse levels of all MetS{odd ratio 2.75(95%Cl1.75-4.31)};the high and high education group was 52% less likely to have MetS{0.48(0.25-0.89)}compared  with the middle income and middle education  group. The most common combination of MetS components was central obesity + low HDL cholesterol (HDL-C)+hyertriglyceridemia, which occurred in 15.5% of all MetS patients and in 3.4% of all South Korea adults (4.1% in men and 2.9% in women).
Conclusions- Those who were older and male as well as low-SES female had higher rates of MetS and its components in South Korea. The SES-MetS association was not found in men. Central obesity + low HDL-C + hypertriglyceridemia was the most common Mets Patter regardless of SES. Understanding these varying patterns could improve our understanding of the etiology of MetS and guide related prevention and treatment afforts. To our knowledge, one gap in the literature is that no published studies have examined the patterns of the composition of  Mets components in South Koreans, although limited research has been conducted in other populations (16,17). A good understanding of the composition of various components is important because individual or particular combinations of other specific diseases and need different management and treatment.
This study assessed the association between sociodemographic-economic factors and the various components of MetS using nationally reprentative data collected from South Korean daults 19-65 years of age. We also studied the composition of various MetS components. The findings will help guide future interventions to reduce metabolic risks in the target  population.
