The increase in the elderly population cannot be separated from the health problems that occur in the elderly, including the existence of metabolic disorders that have an impact on the process of disability and even death. The purpose of the study was to analyze the prevalence of metabolic syndrome among older people. The study was descriptive using a cross sectional approach. Data were collected on metabolic syndrome. 102 older adults in Pekanbaru Indonesia were selected by cluster sampling. The results showed that the prevalence of metabolic syndrome was 20.6%. It is hoped that this will become a special concern for the older people , health workers, especially in improving the performance of community health centers or nurses.
