Aim: To show the relation between Osteo-arthritis and metabolic syndrome.
Materials and Methods: The components of metabolic syndrome like waist circumference, blood pressure, total triglycerides, HDL cholesterol and fasting glucose were measured.
Results: HDL cholesterol levels between controls and cases were found to be highly significant.
Conclusion: The present study shows that there is increased association of adversely changed components of metabolic syndrome with osteo-arthritis.

Key words: Osteo-arthritis, metabolic syndrome, lipid profile, HDL, triglycerides.
