A Study of the Metabolic Syndrome in Patients With Systemic Lupus Erythematosus
Association of the Metabolic Syndrome and Systemic Lupus Erythematosus in Taiwan

An increased prevalence of the metabolic syndrome has been found in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus in recent years.

This study will investigate the prevalence of the metabolic syndrome in patients with SLE in Taiwan. We expect our study will provide further understanding of the association between SLE and metabolic syndrome, which may give direction to prevent late cardiovascular morbidity and mortality in SLE patients.
