SANTOS, Kennedy Maia dos et al. Degree of physical activity and metabolic syndrome: a cross-sectional study among the Khisêdjê group in the Xingu Indigenous Park, Brazil. Cad. Saúde Pública [online]. 2012, vol.28, n.12, pp.2327-2338. ISSN 0102-311X.  https://doi.org/10.1590/S0102-311X2012001400011.

This study aimed to verify the existence of an association between degree of physical activity and presence of metabolic syndrome in the Khisêdjê indigenous group. The authors evaluated 170 individuals 20 years or older, based on demographic data, physical examination, and laboratory tests. The data were analyzed with the chi-square test (p < 0.05), crude and adjusted prevalence ratios (point and 95% confidence intervals), and Student's t-test. Satisfactory results were observed in relation to cardiorespiratory endurance, flexibility, bending of arms and trunk, and measurement of physical activity according to the number of steps/day. Prevalence of metabolic syndrome was 27.8% and was higher in women, the 39-49-year and ≥ 50-year age groups, and in individuals with lower performance on the cardiorespiratory endurance test, horizontal impulse, and number of steps/day. The results indicate the need for greater surveillance in the control and prevention of risk factors for metabolic syndrome.
