Subashini R, Deepa M, Padmavati R1, Thara R1, Mohan V
Epidemiology and Background: There are some reports that diabetes and metabolic syndrome (MS) are more prevalent among Diabetology, Madras Diabetes Research schizophrenia patients. However, there are very few studies in India which have estimated the prevalence of diabetes and MS in schizophrenia patients. Aims: The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence Dr. Mohan's Diabetes of diabetes, obesity, and MS in subjects with and without schizophrenia. Settings and Design: This case Specialities Centre, WHO control study comprised of "cases" i.e. subjects with schizophrenia recruited from a schizophrenia centre at Collaborating Centre Chennai and "controls" i.e. healthy age‑ and gender‑matched subjects without psychiatric illness selected for Noncommunicable from an ongoing epidemiological study in Chennai in a 1:4 ratio of cases: Controls. Materials and Methods: Diseases Prevention and Fasting plasma glucose and serum lipids were estimated for all subjects. Anthropometric measures including Control, IDF Centre for height, weight, and waist circumference were assessed. Diabetes and impaired fasting glucose (IFG) were Education, 1Schizophrenia defined using American Diabetes Association criteria. Statistical analysis: One‑way ANOVA or student's Research Foundation "t" test was used to compare continuous variables and Chi‑square test to compare proportion between two [SCARF], Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India groups. Results: The study group comprised of 655 subjects, 131 with schizophrenia and a control group of 524 subjects without schizophrenia. The prevalence of the diabetes, IFG, abdominal obesity and MS were Address for correspondence: significantly higher among subjects with schizophrenia compared to those without schizophrenia–diabetes (15.3% vs. 7.3%, P=0.003), IFG (31.3% vs. 8.6%, P<0.001), abdominal obesity (59.2% vs. 44.7%, P<0.001), and MS (34.4% vs. 24%, P=0.014). Conclusion: In subjects with schizophrenia, the prevalence of diabetes, IFG, abdominal obesity, and MS is significantly higher than in those without schizophrenia.

diabetes among schizophrenia subjects could provide vital data for planning appropriate care services. Moreover, a recent study reports that subjects with schizophrenia have limited access to general health care and less opportunity for cardiovascular risk screening.

Among subjects with schizophrenia, the prevalence of MS was 34.4% (n=43), Table 1 reports on the clinical characteristics of the two groups. while among those without schizophrenia, it was 24.0% (n=126) The mean age of the study population was 44±12 years (range 20– 80 years) and 51.9% were males. The BMI was significantly higher in subjects with schizophrenia as compared to those without schizophrenia (23.6±4.8 kg/m² vs. 23.0±3.7 kg/m², P=0.042]. Subjects with schizophrenia also had higher waist Very few studies have been conducted so far on Indian subjects circumference (males: 87.0±12.3 cm vs. 83.1±10.8 cm, with schizophrenia in relation to the prevalence of diabetes and P=0.015 and females: 88.8±11.7 cm vs. 82.8±11.0 cm, MS.

A study from Singapore[4] reported a diabetes prevalence of 30.9% Diabetes (n=19) while impaired glucose tolerance was reported in 16% among Impaired fasting subjects with schizophrenia. The Patient Outcomes Research glucose (n=41) Team (PORT) study[5] reported the diabetes prevalence of 14.9% among schizophrenia subjects. The prevalence of impaired obesity (n=73) fasting glucose (IFG) was reported to be 15% among Caucasian syndrome (n=42) drug–naïve subjects with schizophrenia.[20] Another study among middle-aged European subjects with schizophrenia, reported a prevalence rate of IFG of 8.5%.[21] In the present study, the testing[16] or even to obtain fasting blood glucose levels. This can prevalence of impaired fasting glucose (31.3%) among subjects lead to high study drop-out rates, or use of less reliable indicators with schizophrenia was much higher compared to the European of diabetes such as non-fasting blood glucose levels.[17] There studies. This may be a reflection of higher diabetes rates in India is one study in a drug-naïve population that has used OGTT in general, which is attributed to the "Asian Indian Phenotype," in 50 patients.[18] In the present study, we could not perform associated with increased waist circumference and body fat OGTT due to unwillingness of the subjects with schizophrenia; (particularly visceral fat) leading to greater insulin resistance.[22] hence, prevalence rates were estimated using the ADA fasting plasma glucose criteria.[14] Abdominal obesity, another component of the Asian Indian Phenotype and a component of MS, is a well-established risk According to the Chennai Urban Rural Epidemiology Study factor for a high prevalence of diabetes. The present study found (CURES), the prevalence of diabetes (in the age group of the that the prevalence of abdominal obesity was higher in subjects control group studied) in the general population of Chennai with schizophrenia compared to those without. Earlier studies was 7.3%, while that of impaired fasting glucose was 8.6%.[19] have shown that women with schizophrenia were more frequently Journal of Postgraduate Medicine October 2011 Vol 57 Issue 4 Subashini, et al.: Prevalence of diabetes and metabolic syndrome among subjects with schizophrenia obese than men.[23] In the present study also, the prevalence out and secondly, the duration of the psychiatric drugs, which of the abdominal obesity was higher among female subjects is one of the major causes of increasing obesity in subjects with (80%) with schizophrenia compared to males (40%). A Chinese schizophrenia, has not been taken into account in this study. study on schizophrenia[24] however, found no significant gender Finally, the cross-sectional nature of the study does not allow difference in the prevalence of obesity (39.6% in females and for cause-effect relationships to be established. However, one of 40% in males).
the strengths of this study is that the controls were taken from an epidemiological study.
The term MS refers to a cluster of metabolic risk factors including central obesity, glucose intolerance, hyperinsulinemia, In conclusion, we report that prevalence of diabetes, impaired low HDL cholesterol, high triglycerides, and hypertension.[25] fasting glucose, obesity, and metabolic syndrome are higher Several studies have reported on the prevalence of MS in the in subjects with schizophrenia compared to those without general population. In CURES, we reported that the prevalence schizophrenia. This underscores the need to screen schizophrenia of MS using IDF criteria, was 25.8%.[26] An earlier Indian study[8] subjects for diabetes and MS. Early detection of these disorders revealed that subjects with schizophrenia had a 37.7% prevalence would enable us to take therapeutic measures, and thus delay the of MS using IDF criteria.[8] A study in Finland showed a fourfold complications of diabetes. The first step in prevention of diabetes risk of MS among young subjects with schizophrenia compared is to identify and screen these high risk groups. This can be done to the general population.[7] The Clinical Antipsychotic Trails using a simple screening tool like the Indian Diabetes Risk Score of Intervention Effectiveness (CATIE) study in USA, reported (IDRS)[40] which could be used in subjects with schizophrenia to 42.7% prevalence of MS using ATP III criteria.[27] Another study identify those who are likely to have diabetes or MS.[41] in a US population also reported a 38.6% prevalence of MS[28] while a study from Brazil showed a prevalence of MS of 29% using the same criteria.[29] The present study also confirms a higher prevalence of MS among subjects with schizophrenia We are grateful to the Chennai Willington Corporate Foundation, (34.4%), using IDF criteria.
