Abstract EN

Objective: To evaluate the prevalence of metabolic syndrome (MetS) and metabolic abnormalities among patients with Bipolar Affective Disorder (BAD).

Design: A Case-Control Study.

Setting: Psychiatric Hospital, Ministry of Health, Kingdom of Bahrain.

Method: Sixty-six adult patients diagnosed with BAD were matched 1:1 to sixty-six controls by age and sex.

Personal characteristics were documented and the following measurements were included: weight and height, waist and hip circumference, fasting blood glucose, lipids profile and blood pressure.

Statistical analysis used: Case-control analysis of the two groups was performed.

Result: Twenty-three (34.8%) of the patients with BAD suffered from metabolic syndrome compared to twenty-one (31.8%) of the controls.

Obesity, raised blood pressure and raised triglyceride were higher in cases compared to controls.

Conclusion: Metabolic abnormalities and metabolic syndrome are prevalent in approximately one-third of the patients with bipolar affective disorders in Bahrain.
