||Metabolic syndrome in carbon disulfide-poisoned subjects in Korea: Does chemical poisoning induce metabolic syndrome?
||July 2009, Vol.82, No.7, p.827-832. 26 ref.
||Mass carbon disulfide (CS2) poisoning was reported at a viscose rayon factory in Korea. This study evaluated the association between CS2 poisoning and the prevalence of metabolic syndrome. The 170 CS2-poisoned subjects participated in a health examination conducted at a hospital. The 170 controls were selected randomly from the participants of a Korean national health survey. Metabolic syndrome was defined as simultaneously having at least three of following metabolic abnormalities: abdominal obesity; elevated triglyceride; reduced high-density lipoprotein cholesterol; elevated blood pressure; elevated fasting glucose levels. After adjusting for age, gender, education, marital status, alcohol consumption and smoking, CS2-poisoned subjects had an increased risk of metabolic syndrome (prevalence ratio 1.57).
