In a cross-sectional random survey of the whole of Singapore (2143 subjects aged 18-69 years), cardiovascular risk factors were measured by standardized techniques.
For the analysis in the 18-69 year age group there was adjustment for ethnic group, age, body mass index, alcohol consumption and physical activity.
Among serum lipids, high density lipoprotein (HDL-) cholesterol and fasting triglyceride were inversely related with partial correlation coefficients (r) of males -0.34 (P<0.001) and females -0.26 (P<0.001).
There were no relationships between blood pressure and serum lipids except for direct ones with fasting triglyceride, being males (systolic r=0.06, P=0.066 and diastolic r=0.12, P<0.001) and females (systolic r=0.11, P<0.001 and diastolic r=0.13, P<0.001).
