Aim: This study aims to research the association of metabolic syndrome components with anthropometric measurements like arm circumference, neck circumference, hip circumference, waist hip ratio, and waist to height ratio, which are applied rarely. Methods: This cross sectional study was conducted with 292 patients in November December 2019. The arm circumference, neck circumference, waist circumference, hip circumference, waist hip ratio, waist to height ratio, and body mass index measurements of the patients were made. Glucose, high density lipoprotein, low density lipoprotein, systolic, and diastolic blood pressure measurements were also recorded. The association between metabolic syndrome components and anthropometric measurements was analyzed. Results: Metabolic syndrome is diagnosed in 32.8% of the participants. According to body mass index, 18.6% of the patients were normal, 34.2% were overweight, and 47.2% were obese. There was a significant difference between the patients with and without metabolic syndrome in terms of laboratory parameters, blood pressure values, and anthropometric measurements. In the diagnosis of metabolic syndrome, optimal cut off values for arm circumference, neck circumference, hip circumference, waist hip ratio, and waist to height ratio were determined as 31.75 (AUC=0.703), 34.85 (AUC=0.763), 113.75 (AUC=0.757), 0.90 (AUC=0.701), 0.61 (AUC=0.769) for females while they were 35.75 (AUC=0.573), 39.75 (AUC=0.795), 111.5 (AUC=0.607), 0.96 (AUC=0.888), 0.61 (AUC=0.888) for males respectively. Conclusion: A significant correlation was detected between arm circumference, neck circumference, hip circumference, waist hip ratio, and waist to height ratio, and metabolic syndrome components. However, low density lipoprotein was not correlated with neck circumference and high density lipoprotein with waist to height ratio.
