Cardiovascular risk factors and metabolic parameters in hypertensive women

N. I. Pytetska

Abstract


Prevalence of arterial hypertension (AH) in women increases with age. One of the reasons for that is a menopause preceding the endocrinal disbalance that is responsible for growing incidence of the cardiovascular pathology. In the current study we determined modified factors of the cardiovascular risk and revealed peculiarities of metabolic indicators in hypertensive women depending on the age. We observed 220 hypertensive women at age from 30 to 79 years (the average age was 54.25±0.40 years old) that were divided into 5 groups according to their age. Group 1 (30-39 years old) included 12 women, group 2 (40-49 years old) – 55 women, group 3 (50-59 years old) – 90 women, group 4 (60-69 years old) – 53 women and group 5 (70 years and older) – 10 women. The major modified factors of the cardiovascular risk, anthropometric parame-ters, indicators of glucose and lipid metabolism have been determined and the comparative analysis of the data obtained has been performed. It has been found that the lack of physical exercises, chronic stress and salt overuse were the major factors of the cardiovascular risk in hypertensive women. Worsening of anthropometric parameters was associated with increasing age, deterioration of indicators of lipid and glucose metabolism – with progression of obesity, general (according to the body mass index) and central (according to the waist circumference) ones.
