We investigated safety and efficacy of metformin and dietary product - jam laminaria, enriched with chromium, in integrated ambulatory treatment of patients with metabolic syndrome (MS). During the 6 months we observed 81 patients with MS, the average age of 50, 3 ± 1, 9 years old, who were divided into 3 comparable groups. Patients of the comparison group (n=30) with recommendations on modeling lifestyle and drug therapy of diseases; the first group of patients (n=31) was additionally appointed with metformin 1500-2000 mg/day, and patients in the second group (n=20) received dietary product 20 g/day.
