Data from two cross-sectional population-based surveys were used (ENCAT 1992-1993 [n = 820] and 2002-2003 [n = 1,384]). Applying IDF definitions, MetS tended to increase (P = 0.08), from 25% in 1992-1993 to 28.5% in 2002-2003. Applying ATPIII definitions, MetS prevalence was lower, and it increased significantly (P < 0.001) from 18.4% in 1992-1993 to 24.8% in 2002-2003. MetS prevalence is high and has increased significantly in the last decade in Catalonia. © 2009 International Life Sciences Institute.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/44768||ISSN:||0029-6643||DOI:||10.1111/j.1753-4887.2009.00173.x||Source:||Nutrition Reviews[ISSN 0029-6643],v. 67|
