Metabolic syndrome (MetS) is closely linked with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and cardiovascular diseases. The T2DM is one of the major causes of mortality and public health concern in Mexico. Some studies reported MetS prevalence in different regions from Mexico. However, a systematic report or meta-analysis on MetS prevalence is not available. The aim of this study was to estimate the pooled prevalence of MetS among apparently healthy Mexican adults.

Works consisting of studies using a quantitative method of combining the results of independent studies (usually drawn from the published literature) and synthesizing summaries and conclusions which may be used to evaluate therapeutic effectiveness, plan new studies, etc. It is often an overview of clinical trials. It is usually called a meta-analysis by the author or sponsoring body and should be differentiated from reviews of literature.
