Abstract

The pandemic of essential hypertension, obesity, Type 2 diabetes, and there associate dislipidemia (HOD complex) have set a new benchmark in disease epidemiology.1-3 Their concordance is magnanimous and multifaceted but not universal. Thus the need arises to explore their geo-cultural associates.
Aim: This cross sectional study explored this dimension for rural Indian inpatients in a Central Indian tertiary healthcare facility. Established anthropometric tools are explored for their association with the HOD complex in order to shortlist the valued ones.
Result: BMI (body mass index) and WC (waist circumference) were found to be strong associates with HTN (essential hypertension) (?2 = 0.0034 d.f =1, P<0 d.f=1 p=0.003). d.f=2,> Conclusion: All recommended guide lines specially with respect to HOD complex demonstrates geo-cultural variation. There for it is pragmatic to test them for their suitability with reference to local population.

Keywords: HOD complex, Anthropometric variables, Geo-cultural population.
