Background : Diabetes is the 6th leading cause of death and nowadays much efforts are done to identify the influential factors in creation of diabetes. The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between blood concentration of Chromium and Vanadium in metabolic syndrome (MetS) subjects with or without type 2 diabetes (T2D).

Materials and Methods: Blood samples from subjects digested in nitric acid. The concentration of Chromium and Vanadium in MetS group with T2D 47 patients (30 women, 17 men) and MetS group without T2D 45 patients (33women 12 men) plus normal group 35 person (23 women 12 men) were measured by Furnace Graphite Flameless Atomic Absorption instrument.

Results: The results of Cr and V measurements in blood subjects indicated that there are significant differences between the two groups (p<0.05). The results of this study revealed that the levels of Cr and V are significantly higher in normal group than metabolic syndrum group without T2D. Furthermore, the concentration levels were significantly increased in metabolic syndrum group without T2D than metabolic syndrum group with T2D.

Conclusion: The results of this study indicated that the blood level of measured elements has a correlation with diabetes and metabolic syndrome. Therefore, by measuring the elements level for providing them as a supplements to prevent from the ongoing of the disease or its progress.
