Introduction: Metabolic Syndrome (MS) is a set of pathological and physiological changes, defined by pre-established parameters, such as dyslipidemia, central adiposity, arterial hypertension and diabetes. Objective: To identify the scientific production of associated cardiovascular risk factors in elderly patients with MS. Methodology: This is an integrative review of the literature obtained by searching scientific articles in the LILACS, MEDLINE, SCIELO and BDENF databases, by crossing the descriptors Metabolic X Syndrome, Aged and Risk Factors. Inclusion criteria were articles that had a summary available online, published in the period from 2013 to 2017, focusing on the proposed theme. Review articles, books, book chapters, opinion articles, editorials, dissertations, theses, programs and government reports were excluded, and 8 articles were selected. Results: The findings showed that the regular practice of physical activity associated with a diet rich in fruits, vegetables and whole grains contributes to the metabolic syndrome control. In addition to other important factors such as the diagnostic criteria that may vary according to the severity of MS. The criteria were established from some associations that work with the theme such as: National Cholesterol Education Program/Adults Treatment Panel – NCEP – ATP III (ATPIII) and International Diabetes Federtion (IDF), the first most used because it is not necessary to evaluate insulin resistance, thus making it more viable for the development of research. Conclusion: The study showed that there is a lack of knowledge regarding MS, since there are few organs that treat and study this problem, thus reflecting on the search for research on this topic, because the subject is little discussed, especially in the elderly.
