Sažetak
Aim of this study was to investigate association of elevated body mass index and hypertension with general mortality in the cohort from Croatian Adult Health Cohort Study (CroHort). Risk of death according to body mass index (BMI) and blood pressure category, in period 2003/08, was calculated for 7, 490 respondents, out of which 6, 682 were alive and 808 were dead in 2008. Among men aged 65 and more, elevated BMI was associated with lower risk of death, in accordance with obesity paradox recorded in some previous studies which showed that older men with higher BMI have lower risk of death. Among women aged 50-64 years, being hypertensive was associated with increased risk of death compared to normotensive respondents. Despite obesity paradox which should be further explored, activities on primary and secondary prevention of excess weight and hypertension should be encouraged as means to prevent premature mortality in Croatian population.
