Abstract

Blood pressure, waist circumference and fasting blood glucose tend to be contributor to risk of CVD. Thus, this study was conducted to identify the relationship of CV risk factors with CV risk among women working status in Kota Bharu, Kelantan. 30 working women and non-working women were recruited in the study. They were asked to have three measurements as three CV risk measured and answer a questionnaire BMJ Q-RISK2-2015 to predict CV risk for the next 10 years. Independent T-test was used to investigate the mean difference of cardiovascular risk factors while correlation was used in order to measure relationship between CV risk factors and predicted CV risks. The result shows there was a significant difference between working status for blood pressure, and there was no significant difference for fasting blood glucose and waist circumference. The prediction for CV risk for the next 10 years showed that non-working women had higher risk of getting CVD in future. There was significant relationship for working women and CV risk for waist circumference measurement, for non-working women and CV risk for systolic blood pressure. As for conclusion, non-working women has the higher risk of getting CV risk in the next 10 years.
