ABSTRACT
Risk factors for ischemic heart disease in 421 middle aged and elderly patients attending three hospitals in Basrah
were studied. Metabolic syndrome defined as the presence of three or more of these risk factors were studied too.
Obesity, hypertension, smoking, diabetes and dyslipidemia were present in 46%, 42%, 40%, 30% and 30% of patients
respectively. Most of these factors were uncontrolled. 161(38%) of patients had no detectable risk factor. Metabolic
syndrome was present in 118(28%) of the studied patients.
