Self-reported dyslipidemia in central-west Brazil: prevalence and associated factors



Self-reported dyslipidemia in central-west Brazil: prevalence and associated factors



Ciencia and Saude Coletiva 20(6): 1815-1824



Lipid disorders are risk factors for atherosclerotic disease and its control may reduce morbidity and mortality from coronary artery disease. Knowledge of the factors associated with this injury may subsidize campaigns to encourage change in the population's lifestyle. The objective of this study is to estimate the prevalence of dyslipidemia and to identify associated factors. Cross-sectional population-based study, with individual data from the Telephone Survey on Risk Factors and Protection for Chronic Diseases Surveillance System (VIGITEL). It included 7,975 individuals of both sexes, aged ≥ 18 years living in state capitals in the central-west of Brazil, in the year 2009. Associations were estimated using Poisson regression. The prevalence of dyslipidemia was 15%, increased with age (p = < 0.01) did and not differ significantly according to sex. After adjustments, the variables that were directly associated with the outcome were overweight (p = < 0.01), obesity (p = < 0.01) and self-rated health as poor (p = < 0.01). Regular consumption of bean (≥ 5 days/week) was inversely associated with the prevalence of dyslipidemia (p = < 0.01). The prevalence of dyslipidemia in the central-west of Brazil was increased with age and was associated with bean consumption, excess weight (overweight and obesity) and self-rated health as poor.
