Objective To evaluate the effect of sociodemographic, dietary and physical factors on prostatism in Korean men aged 50 and over.
Subjects and methods A community-based cross-sectional epidemiological study was performed in Yonchon County, Korea.
The Korean version of the International Prostate Symptom Score (IPSS) was used to assess the severity of prostatism.
Data on occupation, marital status, education, smoking habits, alcohol intake, daily consumption of nutrients, body mass index, abdominal circumference, waist-to-hip ratio, blood pressure, serum glucose, cholesterol, triglyceride and high-density lipoprotein (HDL) levels were analysed.
The age-adjusted relative risk of these factors was calculated for moderate to severe prostatism (IPSS = 8).
A multivariate analysis of all significant factors was performed to examine the joint effect of risk factors.
Results Of 514 subjects, 119 (23.2%) had moderate to severe prostatism, the risk for which was related to age and alcohol consumption ; waist-to-hip ratio (which represents the degree of abdominal obesity) and the serum level of HDL showed a biphasic association with prostatism in the multivariate analysis.
Conclusion In addition to previously reported risk factors, these data suggest that there might be an association between the development of prostatism and abnormal lipid metabolism.
