Measurements were carried out on 10 136 people aged 20-69 years for blood sugar, triglycerides, total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, and HDL cholesterol and data were collected on medical history, physical activity, smoking and obesity. The prevalence of any type of dyslipidaemia in the whole group was 68.5% and of diabetes mellitus was 11.0% [10.6% in men and 11.3% in women]. The prevalence of dyslipidaemia in diabetics was 88.9%.
