Objective: To explore the correlation between serum homocysteine (HCY) and serum triglyceride (TG) in elderly patients with metabolic syndrome and its clinical significance. Methods: From January 2020 to February 2021 in Xi 'an Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine,95 elderly patients (age≥60 years old) who met the diagnostic criteria of metabolic syndrome were selected, including 45 cases with normal homocysteine as the control group and 50 cases with increased homocysteine as the observation group. The age, sex, BMI, fasting blood glucose (FPG), low density lipoprotein (LDL-C), high density lipoprotein (HDL-C), TG, systolic blood pressure (SBP), diastolic blood pressure (DBP) and HCY were compared between the two groups. Results: There was no significant difference in sex, age, BMI, FPG, LDL-C, HDL-C and SBP between the group with normal homocysteine and the group with high homocysteine (P > 0.05). The difference of TG and SBP between normal homocysteine group and high homocysteine group was statistically significant (P < 0.05). Conclusion: In the observed cases, the differences of TG and DBP between the normal homocysteine group and the increased homocysteine group are statistically significant, and the increase of HCY is closely related to TG. Paying close attention to the serum homocysteine level in patients with abnormal lipid metabolism has guiding significance for reducing the probability of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular events in elderly patients with metabolic syndrome.
