Abstract

Generalised obesity is increasing in prevalence globally, however trends in abdominal obesity are less well known. In 2003, 1,999 women of childbearing age participated in the Croatian Adult Health Survey, of whom 598 (29.9%) participated in the second cycle in 2008. For 2008, the prevalence of abdominal obesity using the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) criterion (waist circumference > or = 80 cm) was estimated at 70.3% (95% CI 61.8% to 75.7%), whereas the prevalence of abdominal obesity using the National Cholesterol Education Program, Adult Treatment Panel III (NCEP ATP III) criterion (waist circumference > or = 88 cm) was estimated at 48.6% (42.6% to 54.7%). The preceding five-year cumulative incidence was 54.3% (44.5% to 64.2%) and 35.2% (28.0% to 42.4%) using the IDF and NCEP ATP III criteria, respectively. The burden of abdominal obesity is high and rapidly increasing in Croatian women of childbearing age, the key population subgroup for obesity control.

Abstract in Croatian

PREVALENCIJA I PETOGODIŠNJA KUMULATIVNA INCIDENCIJA ABDOMINALNE PRETILOSTI U ŽENA FERTILNE DOBI U HRVATSKOJ ----- Predloženo je da se javnozdravstveni napori koji za cilj imaju kontrolu pretilosti usredotoče na žene fertilne dobi. Prevalencije su prekomjerne generalizirane debljine i generalizirane pretilosti u porastu, kako globalno tako i u Hrvatskoj, međutim slabije su istraženi trendovi u prevalenciji abdominalne pretilosti. U prvom krugu Hrvatske zdravstvene ankete 2003. godine sudjelovalo je 1.999 žena fertilne dobi, od kojih je 598 (29,9%) sudjelovalo i u drugom krugu 2008. godine. Patronažne sestre mjerile su struk sudionica u oba kruga ankete. Za 2008. godinu, procijenili smo da je prevalencija abdominalne pretilosti po IDF kriteriju (od International Diabetes Federation) (opseg struka > ili = 80 cm) među ženama fertilne dobi u Hrvatskoj bila 70,3% (95% CI 61,8% do 75,7%). Iste godine, prevalencija abdominalne pretilosti po NCEP ATP III kriteriju (od National Cholesterol Education Program, Adult Treatment Panel III) (opseg struka > ili = 88cm) bila je u ovoj populacijskoj podskupini 48,6% (42,6% do 54,7%). Kumulativna incidencija za prethodno petogodišnje razdoblje iznosila je 54,3% (44,5% do 64,2%) po IDF kriteriju odnosno 35,2% (28,0% do 42,4%) po NCEP ATP III kriteriju. Zaključujemo da je breme abdominalne pretilosti veliko i pokazuje brzi trend rasta među ženama fertilne dobi u Hrvatskoj, ključnoj populacijskoj podskupini za kontrolu pretilosti.
