Background: While the correlation between metabolic syndrome (MS) and serum uric acid (sUA) levels has already been identified, the correlation between MS and the sUA/creatinine ratio has not been studied in Korea. Accordingly, the present study examined the correlation between MS and the sUA/creatinine ratio using data from the seventh Korea National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (2016).
Methods: The study population consisted of healthy adults aged 19 years or older medical diseases. The five components of MS and the presence of MS were used as independent variables, while the sUA/creatinine ratio was selected as the dependent variable. After adjusting for confounding variables, a complex samples logistic regression test was performed to analyze the correlations between the sUA/creatinine ratio and MS and its components.
Results: The following variables showed positive correlation with the sUA/creatinine ratio: systolic blood pressure (BP) (95% confidence interval [CI], 1.051- 1.243; P=0.002), diastolic BP 1.144 (95% CI, 1.054-1.241; P=0.001), fasting blood sugar level 1.166 (95% CI, 1.070- 1.271; P<0.001), triglyceride level 1.340 (95% CI, 1.259- 1.427; P<0.001), high density lipoprotein level 1.163 (95% CI, 1.100-1.230; P<0.001), waist circumference 1.342 (95% CI, 1.239-1.455; P<0.001), and the presence of MS 1.041 (95% CI, 1.034-1.049; P≤0.001).
Conclusions: The findings of the present study demonstrated a statistically significant correlation between the sUA/creatinine ratio and the presence of MS as well as with each component of MS. The significance of the present study is that it is the first study to investigate Koreans.
