Abstract:
Session presented on: Friday, July 26, 2013: Purpose: Known as an antecedence of diabetes mellitus and cardiovascular diseases, metabolic syndrome (MS) is a new health threat among Thai people. The objective of this study was to explore MS situation and its determinants of MS among Thai people in Chon Buri province, Thailand. Methods: Using NECP ATP III criteria, 300 metabolic persons were recruited to assess body fat percentage and filled out a package of questionnaire including demographic, health status, eating behavior, exercise behavior, risk behavior and MS management. Results: The results showed as follow: 1. The majority was female, average age 60.19 (SD =10.8), low income (5,000 baht (M=4,941.70, SD=9868.10), primary school completion, housewife, received treatment for chronic illness (hypertension, diabetes, & hyperlipidemia), and utilized herbs/complementary therapy. 2. Body fat percentage was related to herb utilization (r = .159, p<.05), SNACK (r = .136, p<.05), weight control (r=.132, p<.05), received health information from TV, (r= -.137, p<.05), and perceived health status (r= -.103, p<.05). 3. Predicting factors of percent body fat included herb utilization (Beta = .147, p <.05) weight control (Beta = .206, p <.05) SNACK (Beta =.195, p <.05), received health information from TV (Beta = -.137, p <.05), and perceived health status (Beta =-.123, p <.05. Total variance explain account for 10.9 (p <.05). Conclusion: Based on research results, nurses and health care providers should create interventions to prevent and manage MS focusing on significant factors.
