Abstract:
The present study was carried out with the objective to study the risk factors of cardiovascular disease among adult males and females. The sample consisted of 120 urban adults of the age group 35 to 55 years. The questionnaire was constructed to collect information from the respondents, which was then analyzed using statistical tools such as frequency, percentage, mean, standard deviation, and t-test. All the respondents' nutritional status was assessed, including anthropometric measurements like height, weight, waist circumference, and hip circumference. A food frequency questionnaire was used for the assessment of food consumption patterns. A significant portion of the respondents (44.17%) reported sleeping 6-8 hours daily. The most common form of exercise reported was walking, with 60.00% of respondents engaging in it. There 1.67% of respondents admitted to chewing tobacco once a day. Among the non-nutritional risk factors, excessive salt intake, high consumption of sweets, cold beverages, high-fat foods, inadequate fruit, and vegetable intake, and preference for unhealthy snack foods are the potential risk factors for cardiovascular disease.
