Abstract

The phase one of structured and continuous medical surveillance
programme was conducted on all staff of Universiti Teknologi MARA
(UiTM) Pahang. The main objectives of the surveillance are to
inculcate a healthy lifestyle and monitor the health risks among the
staff of UiTM. A total of 325 staff (65%) participated in this
programme. It was held at the Medical Unit of UiTM Pahang from
5th to 26th June 2007. The findings reveal that 47 participants (14%)
were obese while 154 (48%) were overweight. A total of 210
participants (64.6%) had the cut off point of systolic pressure
140mmHg or more and diastolic pressure 90 mmHg or more. Diabetes
with fasting glucose 7.9mmol/l or more was detected in 15
participants (6.6%). 67 or 45% of the participants were found to
have elevated fasting cholesterol of 5.2mmol/l or more. 5 participants
(17%) were found to have significantly abnormal ECG. All
participants detected to have health problems and illness were
