Prevalence of hypertension among obese and non-obese patients with coronary artery disease

Prevalence of hypertension among obese and non-obese patients with coronary artery disease

Journal of Ayub Medical College, Abbottabad 22(2): 130-133

Globally, obesity is now recognised as an epidemic. The degree of obesity is proportional to the rate of development of cardiovascular diseases, hence, resulting in a dramatic increase in morbidity and mortality. Apart from obesity, hypertension is another well recognised risk factor contributing to coronary artery disease (CAD). The precise prevalence of obesity-related hypertension varies with age, race and gender; and is yet unknown in our population. The objective of this study was to determine the prevalence of hypertension in obese and non-obese patients with diagnosed CAD. This hospital based descriptive study was conducted in Cardiology Department of Postgraduate Medical Institute, Lady Reading Hospital, Peshawar from 15th March 2007 to 30th May 2008. A total of 200 patients with diagnosed CAD were enrolled, 100 were found obese and 100 non-obese. Among these, a total of 111 (55.5%) were found to be hypertensive, 66 (59.46%) of these were obese and 45 (40.54%) non-obese (p=0.003). Obese patients with CAD had significantly more frequent hypertension.
