Abstract

Cardiovascular diseases (CVD) are one of the major causes of death all around the world. In India, death rate from heart diseases has increased in parallel with the tremendous increase in population which is a major reason why clinical research in this field is extremely important. The present study was undertaken to assess the nutritional status and the risk factors for prediction of CVD in forty middle aged Indian subjects to enable them to take early preventive measures. The study revealed that genetic factors, high Body Mass Index (BMI), high fat and low fibre diets, serum Lipoprotein (a) and Homocystiene were largely responsible for the subjects to be in high risk category. The serum Lipoprotein (a) levels (47.7 ± 2.5 mg/dl) and Homocystiene levels (19.0 ± 7.8 mg/dl) were significantly high (p ≤ 0.01) as compared to normal. A strong two tailed correlation was seen at 0.01 and 0.05 levels between the serum cholesterol and LDL levels of diabetic subjects. Similarly correlation was seen between high fat intake and high BMI of all the forty subjects studied. The results indicate that Indians need to control their saturated fat intakes, take a high fibre and folic acid rich diet, exercise and reduce stress to bring a halt to the rapidly rising incidence of this chronic and serious problem of CVD in India.
