Diabetes Prevention

PDM: Metabolic Syndrome

  • Intervention
    In adults with metabolic syndrome, what is the impact of sugars intake, independent of weight loss, on glycemic-related outcomes (such as fasting blood glucose, random blood glucose, two-hour post-prandial blood glucose, A1C)?
    • Conclusion

      There were no studies identified to evaluate the impact of sugars intake, independent of weight loss, on glycemic-related outcomes in adults with metabolic syndrome.

      Intervention studies are needed to ascertain the effects of sugars intake on glycemic-related outcomes in adults with metabolic syndrome with or without meeting the metabolic syndrome criteria for impaired glucose tolerance and impaired fasting glucose.

    • Grade: V
      • Grade I means there is Good/Strong evidence supporting the statement;
      • Grade II is Fair;
      • Grade III is Limited/Weak;
      • Grade IV is Expert Opinion Only;
      • Grade V is Not Assignable.
      • High (A) means we are very confident that the true effect lies close to that of the estimate of the effect;
      • Moderate (B) means we are moderately confident in the effect estimate;
      • Low (C) means our confidence in the effect estimate is limited;
      • Very Low (D) means we have very little confidence in the effect estimate.
      • Ungraded means a grade is not assignable.

    In adults with metabolic syndrome, what is the impact of sugars intake, independent of weight loss, on lipid outcomes (TG, HDL)?
    • Conclusion

      There were no studies identified to evaluate the impact of sugar intake, independent of weight loss, on lipid outcomes in adults with metabolic syndrome.

      Intervention studies are needed to ascertain the effects of sugar intake on lipid outcomes in adults with metabolic syndrome with or without meeting the metabolic syndrome criteria for lipid levels.

    In adults with metabolic syndrome, what is the impact of sugars intake, independent of weight loss, on anthropometric outcomes (WC, WHR)?
    • Conclusion

      There were no studies identified to evaluate the impact of sugars intake, independent of weight loss, on anthropometric outcomes in adults with metabolic syndrome.

      Intervention studies are needed to ascertain the effects of sugars intake on anthropometric outcomes in adults with metabolic syndrome with or without meeting the metabolic syndrome criteria for anthropometric measures.

    In adults with metabolic syndrome, what is the impact of sugars intake, independent of weight loss, on blood pressure?
    • Conclusion

      There were no studies identified to evaluate the impact of sugars intake, independent of weight loss, on blood pressure in adults with metabolic syndrome.

      Intervention studies are needed to ascertain the effects of sugars intake on blood pressure in adults with metabolic syndrome with or without meeting the metabolic syndrome criteria for blood pressure.

    In adults with metabolic syndrome, what is the impact of sugars intake, independent of weight loss, on renal outcomes?
    • Conclusion

      There were no studies identified to evaluate the impact of sugars intake, independent of weight loss, on renal outcomes in adults with metabolic syndrome.

      Intervention studies are needed to ascertain an effect of sugars intake on renal outcomes in adults with metabolic syndrome with or without meeting the metabolic syndrome criteria for urinary albumin excretion rate or albumin:creatinine ratio.
