ABSTRACT
Introduction: One of the greatest discoveries of modern medicine over past 50 years was discovery of cardiac-vascular diseases risk factors. If generally accepted risk factors are put under control, it results with evident reduction of number of cardiac-vascular diseases. Objective: The objective of this paper was to establish presence of harmful habits as risk factors and correlation between these factors and arterial hypertension prevalence rate among secondary school-age youth. Methods: Survey was conducted on the sample of 1,121 respondents, 306 male and 815 female, age cohort 15 though 18. Epidemiological analytical research methods and modern statistic data processing we used to examine increased relative risk (RR) for disease with reliability coefficient (OR) which indicates significant correlation between risk factors and hypertension development. Results: Epidemiological analytical research methods and modern statistic data processing, shows for boys increased relative risk (RR) for disease with reliability coefficient (OR) which indicates significant correlation between risk factors and hypertension development in terms of: increased neuroticism, low physical activity, and formula feeding during first three months after birth, while the correlation is loose and not statistically significant in terms of: tobacco smoking, passive smoking, consummation of alcohol drinks and hypertrophy at birth. For girls it shows increased relative risk (RR) for disease with reliability coefficient (OR) which indicates significant links between risk factors and hypertension development in terms of: increased neuroticism, low physical activity, tobacco smoking and passive smoking, while the correlation is less expressed and not statistically significant in terms of: consummation of alcohol drinks, hypertrophy at birth, and feeding during first three month after birth. Conclusion: This survey established that additional risk factors for arterial hypertension development with boys age cohort 15-18: increased neuroticism level, low physical activity and formula feeding during first three month after birth, while the correlation is less expressed and is not statistically significant, though it still exists, in terms of: tobacco smoking, passive smoking, consummation of alcohol drinks and hypertrophy at birth, while additional risk factors for arterial hypertension development with girls age cohort 15-18 include: increased neuroticism level, low physical activity, tobacco smoking and passive tobacco smoking, while the correlation is less expressed and not statistically significant, though it still exists, in terms of: consummation of alcohol drinks, hypertrophy at birth and formula-based feeding during first three months after birth.
