Cardiovascular disease is one of the most important public health problems in developed countries.
We have studied the epidemiology of the following cardiovascular disease risk factors in a random sample (n=704) of the adult population of Catalonia (Spain): hypercholesterolemia (>=6.1 mmol/l or 240 mg/dl), hypertension (SBP>=160 and/or DBP>=95 mmHg), low HDL-cholesterol concentrations (<0.9 MMOL/L OR 35 MG/DL), HYPERTRIGLYCERIDEMIA (>2.8 mmol/m or 250 mg/dl), obesity (BMI>30), smoking and history of diabetes and coronary heart disease.
Two percent of participants had hypertriglyceridemia, 1% had a history of coronary heart disease, 4% a history of diabetes, 6% low HDL-cholesterol concentrations, 12% were obese, 20% had hypertension, 24% had hypercholesterolemia and 36% were smokers.
