With being two of the leading chronic diseases, the purpose was to evaluate the effect of the metabolic syndrome on osteoarthritis of the hip in a healthy sample from the general population. Osteoarthritis was assessed according to the Kellgren-Lawrence classification, while the components of the metabolic syndrome were obtained as part of the clinical study protocol. Blood glucose was found to be a borderline non-dependent factor, while there was no correlation for waist circumference, triglyceride, blood pressure, and HDL. The overall metabolic syndrome was also not significantly correlated. In conclusion, metabolic syndrome and osteoarthritis of the hip are not associated.
