Background: According to Canon, illness could be without any established disease and without any manifested changes in measurable parameters. Therefore, it is possible to assume metabolic syndrome as an illness. Objectives: The aim of this study is try to answer this question if the blood constituent’s profile, within normal limits, related to metabolic syndrome, differs in persons with various normal temperament profiles. Methods: A descriptive study performed on 400 healthy subjects of either sex with ranging in age from 20 to 40 years. The participants’ mizaj was determined using questionnaire. Measurement was carried out by blood cell counter Sysmex KX21N and auto-analyzer Erba XL 600 using Pars Azmoon Company’s Quantitative Detection Kit. SPSS16 was used for data analysis. Results: There was a statistically significant difference in glucose (p=0.007) and triglycerides (p=0.004) of females with warmness-wetness and warmness-dryness. The highest average values of FBS and cholesterol as well as the lowest average value of HDL-C were in males with coldness-wetness Mizaj. The highest mean of triglycerides was in males with warmness-wetness. Those who sorted into dryness group have an average glucose, triglycerides and cholesterol concentration lower and HDL-C, amylase and lipase concentration higher than wetness individuals. There was a negative correlation between lipase and glucose (r=-0.25, p=0.001), triglycerides (r=-0.18, p=0.047). Conclusion: The wetness Mizaj could be a predictable Mizaj of prone to metabolic syndrome.
