Adolescents with metabolic syndrome have a higher risk for cardiovascular diseases and diabetes. Risk factors of metabolic syndrome include central obesity, hypertriglycerid, and hyperglycemia. High intake (>50 g/day) of sugar-sweetened beverages (SSBs) is known to be positively associated with increased waist circumference, triglyceride and fasting blood glucose levels. This study aimed to analyze the relationship between SSBs intake with waist circumference, triglyceride and fasting blood glucose levels in adolescents. This study was a cross-sectional design with fifty-nine subjects of adolescents aged 15-18 years old. They were performed by simple random sampling technique. SSBs and energy intake were assessed with Semi Quantitative Food Frequency Questionnaire, while waist circumference used a tape measure. Blood glucose levels were measured with Glucose Oxidation method, triglyceride levels using colorimetric enzymatic method (GPO-PAP). The data were analyzed by Person Product Moment and Rank Spearman correlation test. High triglyceride levels were observed in 62.7% subjects and total of 44.11% subjects had large waist circumference. Excessive intake of SSB was found in 72.9% subjects. Intake of SSBs was correlated with waist circumference (p=0.020) and triglyceride levels (p=0.044), but not fasting blood glucose levels (p=0.060). Consumption of SSBs > 50 g/day can increase waist circumference and triglyceride levels, that were component of metabolic syndrome.
