Abstract

The aim of this article was to investigate the prevalence of diabetes mellitus and abnormal lipid status with selected anthropometric variables in a sample of hospitalized coronary heart disease (CHD) patients in Croatia (N = 1,298). Prevalence of diabetes mellitus was 31.6% (statistically significantly more frequent in women, 35.7% vs. 30.0%), while prevalences of increased total cholesterol were 72.0%, decreased HDL-cholesterol 42.6% (statistically significantly more frequent in women, 50.2% vs. 39.6%), increased LDL-cholesterol 72.3% and increased triglycerides 51.5%. Reported data on prevalences of diabetes mellitus can be somewhat reassuring (a decrease in its prevalence compared to data from 2006, but they still signal a situation which is a lot worse than in 2002 and 2003); the trend of rising prevalences of dyslipidaemic cardiovascular risk factors must be a cause for an alarm, furthermore as today's preventive and treatment measures in cardiology, both primary and secondary, are strongly focused on dyslipidaemias.

Abstract in Croatian

PREVALENCIJA ŠEĆERNE BOLESTI I POREMEĆENIH VRIJEDNOSTI LIPIDOGRAMA U HOSPITALIZIRANIH KORONARNIH BOLESNIKA U HRVATSKOJ ----- Cilj ovog rada bio je pokazati prevalenciju šećerne bolesti i poremećenih vrijednosti lipidograma uz izabrane antropometrijske varijable na uzorku bolesnika hospitaliziranih zbog koronarne bolesti u Republici Hrvatskoj (N=1.298). Prevalencija šećerne bolesti iznosila je 31,6% (statistički znatno češća u žena, 35,7% prema 30,0%), dok su prevalencije povišenog ukupnog kolesterola iznosile 72,0%, smanjenog HDL-kolesterola 42,6% (statistički znatno češći u žena, 50,2% prema 39,6%), povišenog LDL-kolesterola 72,3% i povišenih triglicerida 51,5%. Iako ovdje prikazani podaci vezani uz učestalost šećerne bolesti mogu biti donekle ohrabrujući (budući da pokazuju smanjenje prevalencije šećerne bolesti u usporedbi sa podacima iz 2006. g., no svejedno pokazuju puno goru situaciju u odnosu na onu iz 2002. i 2003. g.); trend rastućih prevalencija dislipidemijskih kardiovaskularnih čimbenika rizika mora biti znakom za uzbunu, tim više jer su današnje mjere prevencije i liječenja, primarne i sekundarne, snažno usredotočene na dislipidemije.
