Abstract

We investigated if the metabolic syndrome (MetS) and its component risk factors predict cardiovascular disease (CVD) for Aboriginal people from central Australia. WHO (HR 2.83), NCEP (1.80) and IDF (2.47) definitions of the MetS all had positive associations with CVD, however offered little above individual MetS components for hyperglycaemia.
