Abstract

This study aims to study the association of body mass index (BMI), blood pressure and age in adult males between 40-60 years. Body Mass Index, Systolic BP/Diastolic BP/Mean Arterial /Pulse Pressure were measured on 60 male patients aged between 40-60 years. Statistical comparisons and correlations were carried out between 40-50 year age group and 50-60 year age groups at 5% level of significance. In the Age group between 40-50 years (n = 33), 14 were non-obese & normotensive (43%), 10 were Obese & normotensive (30%) & remaining 9 were Obese & Hypertensive (27%). In the Age group between 50-60 years (n = 27), 6 were non-obese & normotensive (22%), 10 were obese & normotensive (37%) & remaining 11 were obese & hypertensive (41%). SBP, DBP, MAP & PP are high in 50-60 year age groups. MAP correlated positively with BMI in both age groups. Identification of percentage of population at risk among middle aged males between 40-60 years will benefit for therapeutic & prophylactic measures to prevent obesity related morbidity & mortality.
