  • Abstract  

    Introduction: Depression is associated with increased physical co-morbid conditions. The results of previous studies on the relationship between symptoms of depression and metabolic syndrome are weak.

    Objectives: Hence this study was designed to assess the frequency of metabolic syndrome in unipolar depressive patients and its association with the symptoms of unipolar depression.

    Materials and Methods: A total of 64 patients with unipolar depression, diagnosed according to ICD 10 guidelines were included consecutively. Spearman’s correlation was performed to find the association.

    Results: 23.4% of unipolar depression patients had metabolic syndrome. Our study did not reveal any significant association between the symptoms of unipolar depression and metabolic syndrome.

    Conclusion: Prevalence of metabolic syndrome in depression is low and symptoms of depression are not associated with metabolic syndrome.
