Abstract

Objective: The current systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials (RCTs)was conducted to summarize the effect of mobile health (m-health)interventions on lipid profiles among patients with metabolic syndrome and related disorders. Methods: Cochrane Library, EMBASE, PubMed, and Web of Science databases were searched to indentify the relevant randomized clinical trials published up April 30 th , 2018. Two reviewers examined study eligibility, extracted data, and assessed risk of bias of included clinical trials, individually. Heterogeneity was measured using I-square (I 2 )statistic and Cochran's Q test. Data were pooled the standardized mean difference (SMD)effect size by the random-effect model. Results: 18 trials of 1681 citations were identified to be appropriate for the current meta-analysis. Findings random-effects model indicated that m-health interventions significantly decreased total- (SMD �0.54; 95 CI, �1.05, �0.03)and LDL-cholesterol levels (SMD �0.66; 95 CI, �1.18, -0.15). M-health interventions had no significant effect on triglycerides (SMD �0.14; 95 CI, �0.56, 0.28)and HDL-cholesterol levels (SMD �0.35; 95 CI, �0.81, 0.11). Conclusion: Overall, the current meta-analysis demonstrated that m-health interventions resulted in an improvement in total- and LDL-cholesterol, but did not affect triglycerides and HDL-cholesterol levels. © 2019 Diabetes India
