The paper is concentrated on a problem of coexisting two syndromes: metabolic and depression. The importance of glucocorticoids, especially a role of glucose and proteins in metabolism, is presented here. The paper also presents the criteria of metabolic syndrome developed by: the USA National Cholesterol Education program Adult Treatment, World Health Organization and International Diabetes Federation. Common existence of both metabolic and depression syndromes was taken into consideration in the light of the latest research. A significance of environmental factors (a life style) in metabolic syndrome was indicated. Basing on the investigation results, a frequency of the occurrence of the individual components of the metabolic syndrome and their correlation with depression syndrome was evaluated. The correlation between laboratory studies in both sexes and revealing depression symptoms were highlighted. The relationship between both unhealthy diet and little activity and the development of depression syndrome ware observed. Finally, an advantageous role of psychological distress as a factor protecting against development of the individual components of metabolic syndrome was emphasized.

Key words: metabolic syndrome, depression syndrome, anxiety
