Blood Pressure, Exercise, Metabolic Syndrome


Metabolic syndrome (Mets) is a multiple risk factor for coronary heart disease, diabetes, and several organ malfunctions that comes up from insulin resistance and metabolic dysfunctions caused of abnormal adipose deposition. One of the component criteria of metabolic syndrome is elevated blood pressure. Unhealthy lifestyle and sedentary physical activity are considered to have relationship with metabolic syndrome incidents in workers. This study aimed to analyze smoking habit, regular exercise and family’s medical history associated with blood pressure using International Diabetic Federation Criteria for Mets in a container crane operator’s population. The study was explored in a cross sectional study of 40 container crane operator. Using logistic regression for analyzing, the study found that regular exercise had significant association with blood pressure in worker adjusted with age.
