Abstract
BACKGROUND: Increased ferritin concentrations, which reflect body iron stores, contribute to insulin dysfunction and metabolic syndrome (MetS). METHODS: This cross-sectional study included 7346 subjects (3229 men and 4117 women) who participated in the 2007-2008 Korean National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (KNHANES). We adopted the modified Asian criteria for MetS from the American Heart Association/National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute. RESULTS: In comparison with participants in the first serum ferritin quartile, the odds ratio (95% confidence interval) for MetS for participants in the fourth serum ferritin quartile was 1.67 (1.24-2.23) in men and 1.41 (1.06-1.88) in women after adjusting for multiple covariates (including menopausal status in women) except insulin resistance. This association was attenuated, however, after additionally adjusting for insulin resistance [1.46 (1.08-1.98) in men and 1.22 (0.91-1.65) in women]. In particular, higher serum ferritin concentrations were associated with increased triglyceride concentrations in men and glucose intolerance in women. CONCLUSIONS: Increased serum ferritin level was positively associated with the prevalence of MetS and with some diagnostic components of MetS, i.e., we found that increased serum ferritin concentrations were associated with high triglyceride and glucose concentrations in men and women, respectively.
