Table 1

Genotype distribution of VDR gene polymorphisms among individuals with and without MetSyn
Genotype With MetSyn Without MetSyn p-value
Distribution (%) n = 116 n = 127
FokI FF 13 8
(VDR 2228570 C > T) Ff 47 57
ff 40 35 p = 0.16
BsmI BB 20 9
(VDR 1544410 A > G) Bb 43 41
bb 37 50 p = 0.79

Legend: the distribution of the VDR polymorphisms is in Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium. Normal dominant homozygous genotype “FF, BB”; heterozygous genotype “Ff, Bb”; mutant recessive homozygous genotype “ff, bb”.
