Abstract

Background: The possible association between depressive symptoms and metabolic syndrome (MetS) has recently become an important topic of discussion. There is some limited and inconsistent evidence in the literature concerning whether or not depression and metabolic syndrome are associated. The aim of this study was to examine the association between depressive symptoms and metabolic syndrome.
