The Faculty of Health Sciences - Department of Nutrition & Dietetics at Beirut Arab University collaborated in the International research project that was held in partnership with University of Oxford (UK) and Gunma Paz University (Japan). This project resulted in publishing a journal paper entitled “Association between Sarcopenic Obesity (SO) and Metabolic Syndrome (Mets) in Adults: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis” at the Current Cardiology Reviews (Q2 peer-review journal).

The research aimed to assess the prevalence of Mets among individuals with Sarcopenic Obesity (SO), and to determine if the latter may increase the relative risk of the former. The major finding of the study was that no higher prevalence of Metabolic Syndrome (Mets) among individuals with Sarcopenic Obesity (SO) when compared to those with obesity only, nor a significant association between Sarcopenic Obesity (SO) and a higher risk of Metabolic Syndrome (Mets) was found.
