Abstract

The association between Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) infection and metabolic syndrome (MetS) determined in different cohorts from different countries is currently inconclusive. In the majority of previous studies, H. pylori infection was diagnosed based on the presence of H. pylori IgG antibody in the serum. However, to the best of our knowledge, only few studies have investigated the association between H. pylori infection and MetS using the urea breath test (UBT) as a diagnostic tool. The present study was performed with the aim of providing a detailed analysis of the association between H. pylori infection, as diagnosed by the UBT method, and MetS in a large community from Zhejiang province in eastern China. The results indicated that H. pylori infection increases the risk of MetS in the aged female population.
