The Awareness of Abdominal Obesity and Metabolic Syndrome in Healthcare Workers
In a study that has been done five years ago, it was reported that too few of healthcare workers were aware of abdominal obesity and metabolic syndrome (MetS) as a clinical entity.

A total of 731 healthcare workers (physicians: 262, nurses: 199, other healthcare staff: 270, mean age: 32.17 ± 8.0) were enrolled. Demographic, anthropometric, and biochemical data were recorded. International Diabetes Federation (IDF) criteria were used for abdominal obesity and MetS assessment. Full Text
