Abstract

We compared the levels of hepatic enzymes in 220 Japanese men with metabolic syndrome with those in age and sex-matched subjects without the syndrome. Metabolic syndrome was defined by the new criteria published in Japan, and hepatic enzymes, i.e., aspartate aminotransferase (AST), alanine aminotransferase (ALT) and γ-glutamyl transpeptidase (γGTP), were measured. AST, ALT and γGTP in subjects with metabolic syndrome were significantly higher than those in subjects without the syndrome, and metabolic syndrome was closely associated with hepatic enzymes in this cohort of Japanese men.
