Dear Reader,

We the authors of paper “Estimation of prevalence of metabolic syndrome among 1st year medical students of a medical college in North Karnataka, India”[1],[2] appreciate the effort taken by you in reading and critically reviewing our article. It is a great pleasure to receive the constructive feedback by readers like you.

We also thank the reader for updating us on the newer guidelines IDF 2016,[3] according to which the values of the diagnosing parameters are given in [Table 1].
Table 1: Comparison of new IDF guidelines 2016 with old IDF 2006

After applying the latest guidelines, there is increase in the percentage of abdominal obesity or waist circumference from 59.17% to 75%. Hence, we expect the likely increase in the prevalence of metabolic syndrome too. Furthermore, we would like to assure the reader to conduct a large-scale study for estimating prevalence of MS considering the Indian IDF criteria.
