ABSTRACT

Introduction: Cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) have posed a great threat to the health and well-being of people all over the world. It has been estimated that about 31% of all deaths in the world are caused due to the CVDs. Objectives: This study was aimed to see the prevalence of CVDs among medical students and the correlation of waist hip ratio with CVDs. Material and Methods: A total of 200 students, 100 from MBBS and 100 from BDS were selected. Furthermore, each group consisted of 50% participants of either sex. Data was collected and analysed by Chi-square and Fisher Exact test using SPSS 23.0 version. Results: The mean age of the students was 19.41±1.64 years. It was observed that percentage of students who were obese was almost same but 29% of BDS students were overweight in comparison to 11% of MBBS students and the difference was statistically significant (P<0.05). Both WC and WHR were found significantly higher (P=0.006) in female students (24% and 60% respectively) than their male counterparts (10% and 39%). Furthermore, the Physical inactivity was also more prevalent in the female students (84%) than their male counterparts (46%). On the contrary. The male BDS students showed higher percentage of students with elevated BP than other subgroups. Conclusion: It was found higher prevalence of CVD risk factors like overweight, increased WC, increased WHR among the female students and more so belonging to the BDS stream. However, elevated BP was found more in the male BDS students.
