To estimate how metabolic syndrome influences the course of bronchial asthma we investigated 46 patients, 35 of them were diagnosed with metabolic syndrome. We established that in the patients with association of asthma and metabolic syndrome respiratory function and asthma control were significantly lower than in patients without metabolic syndrome. Also we established the inverse relation between the degree of obesity, abdominal type of obesity, the degree of arterial hypertension, fasting glycemia, atherogenous disturbances and the presence of diabetes. Hypocapnic disturbances were also found 2 times more frequently in asthmatic patients having metabolic syndrome.
