Resumo

LEIVA, Ana María  e  EN REPRESENTACION DEL GRUPO DE INVESTIGACION ELHOC et al. Association of a healthy lifestyle index with cardiovascular risk factors in Chileans adults. Rev. méd. Chile [online]. 2018, vol.146, n.12, pp.1405-1414. ISSN 0034-9887.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/s0034-98872018001201405.

Background:

Healthy lifestyles are associated with a better metabolic and cardiovascular health profile.

Aim:

To investigate the association between a lifestyle score and cardiovascular risk in Chilean adults.

Material and Methods:

A healthy lifestyle score was derived for 2,774 participants in the Chilean National Health Survey 2009-2010 and based on seven modifiable behaviors (salt intake, fruit and vegetable intake, alcohol consumption, sleep duration, smoking, physical activity and sedentary behaviors). A high score represented a healthier lifestyle whereas a low score represents an unhealthy lifestyle. The association between the lifestyle score and cardiovascular risk factors (obesity, hypertension, diabetes, dyslipidemia and metabolic syndrome), was explored using logistic regression models.

Results:

One quartile increment in the healthy lifestyle score was associated with a lower risk for obesity (Odds ratio (OR): 0.82 [95% confidence intervals (CI): 0.75 to 0.90], p < 0.01), central obesity (OR: 0.88 [95% CI: 0.81 to 0.96], p < 0.01), diabetes (OR: 0.84 [95% CI: 0.75 to 0.95], p < 0.04) and dyslipidemia (OR: 0.90 [95% CI: 0.83 to 0.98], p = 0.01). These results were independent of major confounding factors.

Conclusions:

The adherence to a healthy lifestyle is associated with lower cardiovascular risk.
