Core Tip Interleukin-18 (IL-18) gene polymorphisms may influence the expression of its levels. This in turn increases the risk of metabolic syndrome (MetS). Therefore, we aimed to assess the circulatory levels of IL-18 and determine whether the presence of IL-18 promoter polymorphism influences MetS phenotypes. Subjects with AA genotype had a higher body fat, insulin resistance, tumor necrosis factor α and IL-18 levels when compared with subjects with AC (heterozygous) or CC (wild type) genotypes. This preliminary data suggests that IL-18 polymorphism affects IL-18 levels that might cause low grade inflammation. All these increase the susceptibility to develop MetS. Further studies are required to validate our findings.
