Abstract: Background. It remains uncertain whether the metabolic syndrome (MS) or insulin resistance contribute to the association between vitamin D deficiency and obesity. Methods. We conducted a cross-sectional survey of 343 subjects who were overweight or obese. We analyzed anthropometric data and the presence or absence of MS. Additionally, we determined 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25OHD) and insulin concentrations, and the HOMA index was calculated. Chi-square test,Mann-Whitney U test, Student's t -tests,and logistic regression analysis were used. Results. The mean age of the patients was 42 ± 11 years, and 65. 9% were women. The mean BMI was 34. 7 ± 8. 3 kg/m 2 and 25(OH)D levels were 53. 7 ± 29. 8 nmol/L. Forty-six patients (13. 4%) had MS. Vitamin D status was associated with the degree of obesity, especially with a BMI > 40 kg/m 2. Patients with MS had lower levels of 25(OH)D than patients without (43. 3 ± 29. 0 versus 55. 3 ± 29. 6 mmol/L, resp. ), and the odds ratio for hypovitaminosis D was 2. 7 (confidence interval (CI), 1. 14-6. 4) (P =. 023) for patients with MS versus patients without MS, irrespective of the degree of obesity. Conclusions. Our data confirm the association between vitamin D and MS and suggest that this association is independent of the degree of obesity.
