Abstracts
The aim of this research was to investigate the prevalence of obesity and high blood pressure and to prove which of
three anthropometric indicators of obesity – waist circumference, body mass index (BMI) waist-to-hip ratio – is better predictor
for the development of hypertension in women population of the island of Cres. We approached separately groups
of women with measured high blood pressure and with previously diagnosed. The research was preformed within the research
project »Genetic and biomedical characteristics of the population of the island of Cres«. This was the cross sectional
study and data were obtained on the sample of 247 females over 18 years old that voluntarily participated in this
study. In our study group the prevalence of overweight was 39.0%, obesity 27.5%, increased waist circumference was
present in 69.4% while increased blood pressure was found in 53.0% examinees. Our results indicate that age, BMI, impaired
glucose concentration and serum cholesterol could be considered as predictors for the development of arterial hypertension,
whether measured or previously diagnosed.
