Abstract

Background: With the turn of the century, CVDs have become the leading cause of mortality in India. Objectives: To correlate the level of Hs-crp with risk factors smoking, hypertension and diabetes mellitus. Material & Methods: This cross sectional study was conducted on patients admitted in the Intensive cardiac Care Unit of Karnataka Institute of Medical Sciences, Hubli between November 2015 – January 2017. A total number of 110 patients were recruited for the study. Results: Out of the total 110 cases 78(70.9%) were male patients and 32(29.1%) female patients. Most of patients were in age group of 51-60 yrs (40%). In the study 18.2% had HTN, 22.7% had DM, 84.5% were smoking and consuming tobacco, 80% were consuming tobacco and 35.5% were alcoholics. In the study there was no significant association between hsCRP and Age, HTN, DM, Smoking, Alcohol and BMI. Hence the above mentioned factors were not affecting HSCRP. Conclusion: HSCRP can be included as one of the risk factor for CVD assessment and it can be used as screening in high risk individual for CVD assessment, which helps in primary prevention.
