Abstract: Aim of the study: There are increasing evidences about relationship between vitamin D metabolism and occurrence of diabetes. The aim of the present study was to know the relationship between vitamin D concentration and the components of metabolic syndrome in urban population. Methods: A case control study was conducted on 101 healthy populations who had no history of diabetes. The MS was defined according to WHO criteria. Results and conclusion: In the total population the prevalence of vitamin D deficiency (˂50nmol/L) was 76.23 %( 60.60% in men and 77.14% in women). In the components of dyslipidemia had the highest prevalence which was 80.30% in men and 77.14% in women. In men with vitamin D deficiency, the prevalence of metabolic syndrome was higher than normal vitamin D group (33.33% Vs 11.76%). The prevalence of MS in vitamin D deficient group was higher than in normal vitamin D group (23.37% Vs 8.3%,p˂0.0001). with regard to low vitamin D, the unadjusted odds ratio for metabolic syndrome relative to components such as BMI,TGL, FBS&HTN are 4.695(95% of CI 3.138-10.693) , 5.792(95% of CI 3.138-10.693), 5.792(95% of CI 3.138-10.693) and2.792(95% of CI 1.528-5.1002) respectively. In the study significant inverse association were present for vitamin D with central obesity, hyperglycemia, hypertriglyceridimia and hypertension. The findings of this investigation revealed that vitamin D deficiency may have an important role in metabolic syndrome and its components.
