A population survey was conducted on 3608 randomly selected Danes aged 30, 40, 50 and 60 years respectively.
Of these, 3400 were not in medical treatment for arterial hypertension.
The following parameters were investigated: sex, age, serum lipid levels (total cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, triglycerides), presence of diabetes mellitus, height, body mass index (BMI), and average daily consumption of coffee, tobacco and alcohol.
Analysis with multiple linear regression showed that all variables with the exception of triglycerides, HDL cholesterol and height were significantly associated with systolic blood pressure.
Likewise all factors except diabetes, triglycerides and height were significantly associated with diastolic blood pressure.
