Objective: To evaluate atherogenicity indicators in the prediction of metabolic syndrome. Methods: A descriptive, cross-sectional study was conducted in adults from the city of Trujillo in 321 people aged 25 to 65 years who accessed care at four health centers, between July-December 2019. Metabolic syndrome was determined by using criteria of the Latin American Diabetes Association (LADA) 2018 and the Adult Treatment Panel III (ATP III). Results: The presence of metabolic syndrome according to LADA and ATP III criteria was 46.1% and 48.6%, respectively. The atherogenic indexes with the most prevalent risk values corresponded to non HDL cholesterol 72%; Castelli index 68.2% and TG/HDL index in 58.3% of the participants. For both LADA and ATP III criteria, the atherogenic index that showed the best prediction was TG/HDL followed by the Castelli index in the case of ATP III. Conclusion: The TG/HDL index is the indicator with the best prediction of metabolic syndrome.
