Abstract

Based on repeated measurement of health behaviors the CroHort Study showed that health behavior explains a great deal more of class inequalities in mortality than observed in previous studies. These include decreasing prevalence of smoking and increase in obesity, hypertension and diabetes mellitus. The lowest prevalence of health risks was recorded among children and adolescents, followed by general adult population from the CroHort Study. Hospitalized coronary heart disease patients had higher risks prevalence than general population, while the highest prevalence of risks was recorded among patients in cardiac rehabilitation program. The higher levels of stress were associated to lower financial conditions, poorer social functioning and poorer mental health for both men and women. Higher levels of stress were also associated with heart problems, higher alcohol consumption in men while in women stress was associated to poorer general health, higher age and lower levels of education.

Abstract in Croatian

STUDIJA CroHort: KARDIOVASKULARNI PONAŠAJNI RIZICI ODRASLIH, ŠKOLSKE DJECE I ADOLESCENATA, HOSPITALIZIRANIH KORONARNIH PACIJENATA I PACIJENATA NA REHABILITACIJI U HRVATSKOJ ----- Ponavljanjem mjerenja studija CroHort je pokazala da zdravstvena ponašanja objašnjavaju veći dio nejednakosti u mortalitetu nego što su to pokazale prijašnje studije. Studija je pokazala pad prevalencije pušenja i porast debljine, hipertenzije i dijabetesa. Najniža prevalencija zdravstvenih rizika zabilježena je u djece i adolescenata, zatim u općoj odrasloj populaciji, nakon čega slijedi populacija hospitaliziranih koronarnih pacijenata i populacija pacijenata na kardio-rehabilitacijskim programima. Najviša razina stresa povezana je s nižim financijskim stanjem, lošijem socijalnim funkcioniranjem i slabijim mentalnim zdravljem kako u muškaraca tako i u žena. Viša razina stresa povezana je sa srčanim problemima i višom konzumacijom alkohola u muškaraca, dok je u žena stres povezan s lošijim zdravstvenim stanjem, starijom dobi i nižom edukacijskom razinom.
