Metabolic syndrome in modern times is a global health issue in the world including India. Its prevalence in the population is following a crescendo pattern. By knowing metabolic syndrome not only we are able to diagnose it in an early and proper manner but can also promote the prevention program. Leptin is a hormone which is mainly synthesized in the white adipose tissue. Leptin level in blood is directly proportional to total adipose tissue mass. In the present study, the association of serum leptin and adiponectin with the components of metabolic syndrome was evaluated. Patients with metabolic syndrome had higher levels of leptin and low levels of adiponectin than Non-Metabolic syndrome (MS) Subjects. We have also found that as compared to the females, the male had a higher possibility of metabolic syndrome.
