Predictors of cardiovascular risk factors in Tehranian adults: diet and lifestyle
AbstractWe carried out a dietary intake assessment in 486 adults 20 from the Tehran Lipid and Glucose Study. There was a strong positive association between body mass index [BMI] and serum triglycerides [beta = 1.6, P < 0.05] and carbohydrate intake and triglycerides [beta = 2.4, P < 0.05]. There was also an association between low-density lipoprotein cholesterol and weight [beta = 1.1, P < 0.05], age [beta = 1.6, P < 0.05] and cholesterol intake [beta = 0.7, P < 0.01]. For 1 unit increase in either BMI, waist to hip ratio or saturated fatty acid intake, diastolic blood pressure increased 0.6, 0.9 and 0.1 mmHg, respectively [P < 0.05]. Dietary and non-dietary factors have an association with, and play a role as predictors of, CVD risk factors
