This overview of the prevalence of Metabolic Syndrome (MetS) in Iran considers the reports on regional and ethnic variation, international comparisons, and within specific groups, including children, diabetics and women at different stages of their life-course. The reported impact of lifestyle is also discussed. One particular controversy has been the definition of MetS, and this remains a difficulty across ethic groups and in children and adolescents. The changes in the criteria being applied to determine the presence of MetS, also makes trends in prevalence difficult to interpret.
