Abstract

Background: There has been no recent estimate of non-communicable diseases (NCDs) in south of Iran. Our data are based on the results of the population-based Bandare Kong Cohort Study, as part of the Prospective Epidemiological Research Studies in IrAN (PERSIAN).
Methods: In this cohort, 4063 people aged 35-70 years were recruited from Hormozgan province, South of Iran.
Results: We found that the age-standardized prevalence (ASP) of metabolic syndrome (MetS), type 2 diabetes (T2DM), impaired fasting glucose (IFG), obesity, and central obesity in this population were 34.5%, 17.4%, 20.6%, 24.6%, and 44.4%, respectively.
Conclusion: These results give a new insight into the prevalence of the NCDs in a sample population from south of Iran and provide the authorities with the necessary information to design guidelines for the control and prevention of these diseases.
