BACKGROUND: A cross-sectional study in the Primary Care Medical Centre Mostar and Regional Medical Center "Safet Mujić" was conducted. Family physicians randomly surveyed, examined, and analyzed laboratory tests from 300 subjects divided into three age groups from 20-39, 40-54 and 55-65 years, totally 100 subjects. Data for age, sex, smoking status, alcohol consumption, body mass index, blood pressure, blood glucose, triglycerides and cholesterol, and the presence of chronic non-communicable diseases, including diagnosis of depression and the presence of stress were entered in medical records.
RESULTS: Levels of cholesterol were significantly higher in rural population as well as among students, and high triglyceride levels most frequently were presented in the student population. A group of farmers had a significantly higher prevalence of hypertension, DM and CVD compared to other investigated groups. The largest number of smokers and people who drink alcohol was present in group with the highest incomes, while obesity was significantly expressed in people with lower incomes. The group of examinees with the highest incomes had the greatest exposure to stress.
CONCLUSIONS: Socioeconomic processes have an impact on risk behavior of the adult population, and the presence of a number of chronic diseases that are accompanied with increased laboratory blood glucose, cholesterol and triglycerides levels.
