Abstract

In this cross-sectional study, persons with 30 years old or older were participated in Jahrom. Rose angina was assessed with Rose questionnaire. Fasting blood lipids and sugar, blood pressure, weight and height were measured. Data were analyzed by chi squared and logistic regression tests.

Results: The prevalence of Rose angina was 21.1%. Women had Rose angina 12.4% more than men (26.5% in women, 14.3% in men; p<0.001). Logistic regression results showed that there was an association only between obesity (OR=1.72; CI 95%:1.07-2.74) and type 2 diabetes mellitus (OR=2.19; CI 95%: 1.24-3.87) among women and Rose angina.
