BACKGROUND: Physical inactivity contributes to metabolic syndrome (MetS) in overweight/obesity. However, little is known about this relationship in prediabetes. METHODS: The study purpose is to examine relationships between physical activity (PA) and MetS in prediabetes. The Healthy Living Partnerships to Prevent Diabetes tested a community translation of the Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP). Three hundred one overweight/obese prediabetics provided walking minutes/week (WM) and total activity minutes/week (AM) via the International Physical Activity Questionnaire. MetS was at least 3 of: waist (men≥102 cm, women≥88 cm), triglycerides (≥150 mg/dl), blood pressure (≥130/85 mm Hg), glucose (≥100mg/dl) and HDL (men<40mg/dl, women<50mg/dl). RESULTS: The sample was 57.5% female, 26.7% non-white/Hispanic, 57.9±9.5 years and had a body mass index (BMI) 32.7 ± 4 kg/m2. Sixty percent had MetS. Eighteen percent with MetS reported at least 150 AM compared to 29.8% of those without MetS. The odds of MetS was lower with greater AM (p-trend=.041) and WM (p-trend=.024). Odds of MetS with zero WM were 2.08 (p=0.046) and with no AM were 2.78 (p=0.009) times those meeting goal. One hour additional WM led to 15 times lower MetS odds. CONCLUSIONS: Meeting PA goals reduced MetS odds in this sample, supporting PA for pre-diabetes to prevent MetS.
