The relationship between the risk of cardiovascular disease with BMI and HDL levels with Rank Spearman (ordinal data scale). Obesity is one of the modifiable risk factors and is an important key in increasing the incidence of cardiovascular disease, which is the measurement of Body Mass Index (BMI). Decreased levels of HDL (high density lipoprotein) in plasma is associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease. The most commonly used is the Framingham risk score (Framingham Risk Score), was is a calculation of the risk of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease in the next 10 years. The objective was determine relationship between BMI and HDL lipid profile as cardiovascular disease risk factor. The research design was cross sectional, in a hospital in Sidoarjo, East Java, Indonesia. The relationship between the risk of cardiovascular disease with BMI and HDL levels with Rank Spearman (ordinal data scale). There were no relationship between HDL profile and BMI with cardiovascular risk factors in metabolic syndrome patients (p=0.682). Therefore, further research was needed to identify the relationship.
