  • TITLE: Prevalence of Hyperuricemia among Hospitalized Elderly Patients and Its Association with Metabolic Syndrome

    AUTHORS: Tomader Taha Abdel Rahman

    KEYWORDS: Hyperuricemia, Metabolic Syndrome, Elderly

    JOURNAL NAME: Advances in Aging Research, Vol.3 No.4, September 25, 2014

    ABSTRACT: There are few data available on the prevalence of hyperuricemia among elderly and its possible association with metabolic syndrome (MetS) so the aim of this study was to assess prevalence of hyperuricemia among hospitalized elderly patients as well as to assess its association with MetS. Cross sectional data from 200 hospitalized elderly patients were analyzed and the results were as follows: the prevalence of hyperuricemia was 21.0% in elderly men and 15.1% in elderly women. Multivariate logistic regression analysis revealed that BMI ≥ 30 (p = 0.031, OR = 1.1), hypertension (p = 0.019, OR = 1.8), high triglycerides level (p = 0.018, OR = 2.9) and hyperuricemia (p = 0.023, OR = 3.7) were independently associated with MetS. The study concluded that the prevalence of hyperuricemia among hospitalized elderly patients was 21.0% in elderly men and 15.1% in elderly women. There was an independent association between hyperuricemia and metabolic syndrome.
