Background: Metabolic syndrome (MS) is a group of risk factors that raises risk of heart disease, diabetes, stroke, and other health problems.
Aim and Objectives: The study aimed to find out correlation between leptin level and MS components.
Materials and Methods: This was a randomized cross-sectional study involved 150 MS patient. Fasting blood sugar, glycated hemoglobin, lipid profiles, leptin and insulin assays, and other anthropometrics measures were measured using standard protocols.
Results: The results revealed that there was significant correlation between leptin level and body mass index, gender, fasting blood glucose, and glycosylated hemoglobin, P < 0.01.
Conclusion: This study was showed that there was significant impact of leptin level on MS.
