Background & Aims: Some studies have reported a high risk of metabolic syndrome among women and night shift workers. The aim of this study was to determine the status of metabolic syndrome laboratory indices and thyroid function tests in nurses employed at the Rajaei Cardiovascular Medical and Research Institute in Tehran in 1399 (2020-2021).
Materials & Methods: The samples in this descriptive-cross-sectional study were the health records of nurses working at the Rajaei Cardiovascular Medical and Research Institute where the personnel's test results were recorded. The sampling method was census. Records with incomplete information that was not retrievable were excluded from the study. A form containing demographic characteristics, thyroid indices, and metabolic syndrome laboratory indices was used to collect data from the nurses' health records. Data analysis was performed using SPSS software version 26.
Results: Out of 401 reviewed records, 339 cases (84.5%) were female. The mean age was 37.47±8.68 years, and the mean work experience of nurses was 13.17±8.07 years. The prevalence of metabolic syndrome laboratory abnormalities in nurses, according to the criteria of the American Heart Association and the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, was 5.21%, and according to the National Cholesterol Education Program (Panel-III) criteria, it was 2.99%. The prevalence of clinical hypothyroidism was 0.2%, subclinical hypothyroidism was 12.0%, and subclinical hyperthyroidism was 1.5% among the nurses.
Conclusion: The results of this study indicate that the prevalence of metabolic syndrome and thyroid disorders among nurses was not significant. Conducting future cohort or longitudinal studies on a larger scale is recommended.
