Abstract
Objective

To describe and discuss current evidence on the relationship between cognitive performance, bipolar affective disorder (BAD) and metabolic syndrome (MS).

Methods

We searched for related articles in different bibliographic databases (MEDLINE, EMBASE, Scielo) and performed a narrative review of the literature with the selected articles.

Results

To date, evidence has not been conclusive and the effect of MS on BD has not been widely studied, but important correlations have been observed with individual metabolic variables. It is suggested that obesity in patients with BAD is associated with worse performance in verbal memory, psychomotor processing speed, and sustained attention. Hypertriglyceridemia in patients with BAD appears to be associated with a lower score in executive function tasks; hypertension appears to be associated with impairment in overall cognitive function.

Conclusions

Despite the associations between MS and poor cognitive performance in patients suffering from BAD, more studies are required to precisely determine how these variables are related to each other.

Resumen
Objetivo

Describir y discutir la evidencia actual sobre la relación entre desempeño cognitivo, trastorno afectivo bipolar (TAB) y síndrome metabólico (SM).

Métodos

Se buscaron artículos relacionados en distintas bases de datos bibliográficas (MEDLINE, EMBASE, Scielo), y con los artículos seleccionados se realizó una revisión narrativa de la literatura.

Resultados

Hasta el momento no se ha estudiado ampliamente el SM en el TAB, pero sí hay datos importantes en la asociación con las variables metabólicas individuales. Se señala que la obesidad de los pacientes con TAB se asocia con peor desempeño en memoria verbal, velocidad de procesamiento psicomotor y atención sostenida. Parecería que la hipertrigliceridemia de los pacientes con TAB está en relación con deterioro en la función ejecutiva, y la hipertensión arterial, con el deterioro en la función cognitiva general.

Conclusiones

Aunque algunas variables del SM se asocian con peor desempeño cognitivo en pacientes con TAB, faltan estudios para establecer con precisión la naturaleza de esta relación.
