Change in Coronary Heart Disease Risk Factors in Young Adults

2014-08-27 03:57:51 | BioPortfolio

Summary

To prospectively examine changes in lipids, lipoproteins, and blood pressure among 295 young adults who had been followed for sixteen years in the Beaver County Lipid Study. The Beaver County Lipid Study tracked the cholesterol values of 295 children, ages 11 to 14 at baseline.

Description

BACKGROUND:

Epidemiologic studies of coronary risk factors have been performed primarily in populations of middle-aged adults, children, and adolescents. Relatively little is known about these risk factors in men and women 20-29 years of age.

This study provided important insights into the determinants of coronary heart disease risk factors in young adults and bolstered the argument of those who favor the early identification of and intervention in the young coronary candidate.

DESIGN NARRATIVE:

Three cross-sectional examinations had been carried out: 1) 1972-1973; 2) 1980-1981; and 3) 1988-1989. The study examined the predictors of change in total cholesterol (from examination 1 to examination 3, and change in LDL-C, HDL-C, and triglycerides between examinations 2 and 3. It also investigated the stability in several health habits and behaviors such as cigarette smoking, alcohol use, adherence to a low fat/low cholesterol diet, and physical activity. Weight gain and oral contraceptive use had been shown in previous analyses to be strong predictors of several lipids and lipoproteins.

Pathological conditions involving the CARDIOVASCULAR SYSTEM including the HEART; the BLOOD VESSELS; or the PERICARDIUM.

Methods and procedures for the diagnosis of diseases or dysfunction of the cardiovascular system or its organs or demonstration of their physiological processes.

Diseases of long duration and generally slow progression. The four main types of noncommunicable diseases are CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASES (e.g., heart attacks and stroke), CANCER, chronic respiratory diseases (e.g., CHRONIC OBSTRUCTIVE PULMONARY DISEASE and ASTHMA) and DIABETES MELLITUS.

Unexpected rapid natural death due to cardiovascular collapse within one hour of initial symptoms. It is usually caused by the worsening of existing heart diseases. The sudden onset of symptoms, such as CHEST PAIN and CARDIAC ARRHYTHMIAS, particularly VENTRICULAR TACHYCARDIA, can lead to the loss of consciousness and cardiac arrest followed by biological death. (from Braunwald's Heart Disease: A Textbook of Cardiovascular Medicine, 7th ed., 2005)

Dental care for patients with chronic diseases. These diseases include chronic cardiovascular, endocrinologic, hematologic, immunologic, neoplastic, and renal diseases. The concept does not include dental care for the mentally or physically disabled which is DENTAL CARE FOR DISABLED.
