A study on coronary heart disease (CHD) in a remote area, Ceningan Island,was conducted.The nutrition states based on BMI were underweight,19.3%; normoweight, 54.9%; and overweight at risk, 13.3%; obese I, 9.5%; and obese II, 3.0%. The prevalence of impaired fasting glycemia (IFG), 15.1%; diabetes mellitus (DM), 6.9%; metabolic syndrome (MetS), 6.8%; and CHD, 11.5%. Age, systolic and diastolic blood pressure, levels of total cholesterol; low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, apolipoprotein (Apo)A, ApoB, Apo B/A ratio were found higher among subjects with old myocardial infarction (OMI) than subjects without CHD; while BMI and waist circumference were lower among subjects with OMI than subjects without CHD. Conclusion: traditional risk factors such as age, blood pressure, and cholesterol, and Apo were related to CHD in the remote area.
