No ethnic differences were observed in the prevalence of prediabetes.For diabetes, Hindustanis (23.3%) had twice the prevalence compared to other ethnic groups (4.7–14.2%).
Background The metabolic syndrome (Met S) indicates increased risk for cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes.
We estimated the overall and ethnic-specific prevalence of Met S and explored the associations of risk factors with Met S among Amerindian, Creole, Hindustani, Javanese, Maroon and Mixed ethnic groups.
From Met S components, central obesity and low high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) had the highest prevalences.
The prevalence of Met S was highest for the Hindustanis (52.7%) and lowest for Maroons (24.2%).
