Lifestyle and the risk of acute myocardial infarction in a gulf arab population.
Recent statistics indicate that acute myocardial infarction (AMI) is becoming very common in the State of Bahrain.
A population-based case-control study was carried out to explore the importance of lifestyle in the occurrence of AMI in Bahrain among those aged 30-79 years.
Seventy consecutive cases with a first episode of AMI were identified from a register, which included all hospital admissions, during the period 1 February 1992 to 31 July 1992, and compared with 516 subjects obtained from a random sample of the same community.
Multiple logistic regression was used to control for demographic variables as well as for the mutual confounding effects of the investigated risk factors.
