Objecive: The objective of the study to investigate the correlation between vitamin D level with different components of metabolic syndrome. Patients and Methods: An observational cross-sectional study on 100patients (male=55 and female=45), age range 30-60 year, was performed. Patients underwent physical examination and biochemical testing. Patients included who fulfill the IDF criteria of metabolic syndrome for South Asians. Analysis was performed using SPSS Statistical package for windows (SPSS VERSION 20). Results: Only 6% of the subjects had optimal level of vitamin D level and67% of subjects are deficient. There was highly significant inverse association between waist circumference, BMI, with vitamin D level in both male and female (p-value 0.001).Increased level of triglyceride level was associated with low vitamin D level (p=0.02) and could not find any association between HDL and vitamin D level (p=0.125). There were inverse association of fasting blood glucose and HbA1C with vitamin D level (p-value 0.014 and <0.001 respectively). No association between systolic and diastolic blood pressure was reported in the study (p-value 0.778 and p-0.563 respectively). Conclusion: Our results suggest correlation of vitamin D level with some components (waist circumference, serum triglyceride and fasting plasma glucose) of metabolic syndrome.
