Background and Objectives: Metabolic syndrome is a collection of factors such as obesity, high blood pressure, high blood sugar, high triglyceride and low high density lipoprotein cholesterol. Metabolic syndrom is the most important risk factor for cardiovascular disease. The aim of this study was  to determine the frequency of metabolic syndrome and its factors in employees of Rafsanjan University of Medical Sciences (RUMS).
Materials and Methods: This descriptive study was conducted on 24 employees of the Medical, Nursing and Dental Schools of RUMS in 2016. Frequency of metabolic syndrome was evaluated according to the criteria of the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) and The National Cholesterol Education Program-Panel 3 (NCEP-ATPIII). Results were reported as descriptive statistics (mean, standard deviation, frequency and percentage).
Results: The results showed that the frequency of metabolic syndrome was %4.2 (n=1). %29.2 of the subjects (n=7) had at least two risk factors for metabolic syndrom. The most prevalent factors of metabolic syndrome in either gender was obesity (%70.8, n=17), high fasting blood sugar (%20.8, n=5) and high triglyceride (%12.5, n=3) and no one had low high density lipoprotein cholesterol and systolic pressure.
Conclusion: According to the complications of metabolic syndrome and the high prevalence of obesity as the most important factor of the syndrome in this study, it may reduce complications of metabolic syndrome and  increase the public health, by increasing their public awareness and planning for changing their lifestyle.
Key words: Cardiovascular disease, Metabolic syndrome, Obesity, Rafsanjan
