Methodology of the study: This cross sectional study was conducted at LMDC during June 2019 to December 2019. This was basically a cross sectional study and sample size was 148. After approval from ethical committee all the parents were informed for the purpose of the study and a written informed consent was taken from the patients. Results: From 148 patients, it was observed that the minimum age was 36 years and maximum age was 65 years with mean and standard deviation of the age was 52.44 ± 7.83 years. The minimum glucose level was 80 mg/dL and maximum was 115 mg/dL with mean and standard deviation was 94.05 ± 11.15 mg/dL. The minimum triglyceride level was 100 mg/dL and maximum was 370 mg/dL with mean and standard deviation was 181.70 ± 88.03 mg/dL. The minimum High Density Lipoprotein level was 30 mg/dL and maximum was 58 mg/dL with mean and standard deviation was 46.22 ± 9.03 mg/dL. Conclusion: The frequency of metabolic syndrome was found in 43.9% patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. All effect modifiers have significant influence.
