The relative importance of inflammatory markers in relation with metabolic syndrome (MeS) in hemodialysis (HD) patients is uncertain. This study investigated the association between MeS and high-sensitive C-reactive protein (hsCRP), hallmark of inflammation, and other inflammatory-related biomarkers. The study included 153 patients who were dialyzed at least for the last 3 months. The serum level of hsCRP was assessed by high-sensitive Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). MeS was defined using the modified National Cholesterol Education Program Adult Treatment Panel III (ATP-III). Ninety-one HD patients (59.5%) were diagnosed as having MeS. Lower level of high-density lipoprotein-cholesterol (HDL-C) was the most prevalent MeS component (85.6%). The serum level of hsCRP in these patients was significantly higher than that in HD patients without MeS (2.3 ± 1.7 vs. 1.7 ± 1.6 mg/dL, p = 0.03). A significant linear increase in the hsCRP levels was found according to the number of MeS components (β = 0.09, p = 0.022). The study concluded that increasing inflammatory biomarkers, especially hsCRP, is associated with MeS in HD patients.
