Abstract :

Abdominal obesity, hypertriglyceridemia, low HDL, hypertension and hyperglycemia indicate condition of metabolic syndrome. Metabolic abnormalities can increase cardiovascular disease risk (Soegondo dan Purnamasari, 2010). The aim of study determine cardiovascular disease risk in the Rejang Clan. Research design used descriptive analytic with cross sectional in which independent variables (BMI, abdominal circumference, blood pressure, uric acid, blood sugar, cholesterol) and dependent variable (cardiovascular disease risk) were measured at the same time. Sample is the Rejang Clan, used purposive sampling with inclusion and exclusion criteria totaling 88 people. Data analysis used univariate and bivariate such as chi square, t independent and correlation test. Gender shows almost all of them are female, age describes most of them aged 45 years, education shows that most of them are highly educated, and occupations describe most of them not working. Mean of BMI is 26.17 kg/m2, abdominal circumference is 87.95 cm, blood pressure is 123.89 mmHg, uric acid is 5.54 mg/dl, sugar is 131.98 mg/dl, and cholesterol is 192.35 mg/dl. There is different proportions on the characteristics of age (p value 0.006), while on the characteristics of gender (p value 0.835), education (p value 0.107) and occupation (p value 0.124) have no difference in proportion. Furthermore, there was no difference in BMI, abdominal circumference, blood pressure, uric acid, blood sugar, cholesterol based on cardiovascular disease risk (p value > 0.05). Rejang Clan do not have a risk of cardiovascular disease.
