    Abstract: Metabolic syndrome is highly prevalent and has important implications for the health care sector. However, information on the implications of metabolic syndrome for people with disabilities is limited. The purpose of this study was to explore the relationship between health behaviors and the risk for triple H (hypertension, hyperlipidemia, and hyperglycemia) in young adults with disabilities. The present study analyzed the annual health examination charts of 705 young adults with disabilities between ages 20 and 39 in Taiwan. Results found that the prevalence of hyperglycemia, hyperlipidemia, and hypertension in adults with disabilities was 5%, 15% and 17.7%, respectively. These prevalence figures were higher than those for the general population of the same age group in Taiwan. Multivariate logistic regression analyses revealed that almost none of the health behaviors were significantly correlated with the occurrence of triple H disorders among young adults with disabilities. Only one factor, BMI, independently predicted the occurrence of triple H disorders. We suggest that future studies should scrutinize the effects of health behaviors on triple-H disorders in people with disabilities to initiate personalize health promotion programs for this group.
