This once again demonstrates that the metabolic syndrome is shown to be no better than the measurement of glucose alone for the prediction of diabetes and that the waist circumference cut-points suggested for ethnic South Asians in the IDF and ATP III definitions of the metabolic syndrome are inappropriate (ie, too high) for this population. The recommendation from this analysis was that evidence-based waist circumference cut-points for different ethnic groups should be developed.

Is the metabolic syndrome a valid tool for ­predicting cardiovascular disease (CVD) and diabetes? To answer this question, the first step is to recognize that clinical definitions of the metabolic syndrome were not formulated for absolute or global risk prediction, for either diabetes or CVD. To do this, it would be necessary to incorporate all known risk factors, including age, sex, total cholesterol, tobacco use, family history, and physical activity and inactivity. Examples of absolute or global risk calculators include algorithms for short-term 40 Atlas of Atherosclerosis and Metabolic Syndrome (10–15-y) risk of CVD based on the Framingham study and diabetes risk algorithms (eg, Stern et al.
