Aim: Changes in lifestyle such as dietary and physical activity may improve dyslipidemia; however, it is still unclear. Thus the aim of this study was to determine the association among lifestyle status and dyslipidemia in Shiraz adults.
Methods: One hundred forty four male (N.=61; mean±SD: 38.8±14.2 years old) and female (N.=83; mean±SD: 44.9±16.5 years old) patients participated in this study. Each subject’s lifestyle status was assessed by a self-administered questionnaire based on Breslow’s lifestyle index and a composite dietary behavior score obtained from self-reported responses to a 24-item food-frequency.
Results: The results demonstrated a negative relationship between Breslow’s lifestyle index and physical activity levels with dyslipidemia (P<0.05). On the other hand, the results showed that there is a positive relationship between less healthy foods with total cholesterol, triglyceride and LDL-c and a positive relationship between healthy foods and HDL-c levels. General linear regression demonstrated that food consumption pattern was independently associated with blood lipid profile in male female.
Conclusion: In conclusion, unhealthy lifestyle, especially having bad food consumption pattern may cause dyslipidemia.
