Purpose:This study was done to survey health behaviors in people at risk for a Cerebrovascular Accident(CVA).
Methods:From November 21 to December 29, 2005, a questionnaire survey was conducted with 171 people at risk for a Cerebrovascular Accident(LDL of above 130㎎/㎗ & homocysteine of above 15.0µ mol/L). Their physical composition was measured and blood was collected.
Results:1. Of the subjects, 34.5% were smokers, 61.4% were drinkers, 56.7% did not exercise regularly, 57.3% did not control their weight, 26.9% preferred eating meat, and 32.2% preferred salty food. 2. The gender was different between smoking status(χ2=10.734, p= .001), and drinking status(χ2=7.185, p= .007), and the age was different between smoking status(χ2=6.656, p= .010), and drinking status(χ2=10.722, p= .001). The HbA1C level was different for regular exercise(χ2=
4.824, p=.028) and the HDL-cholesterol was different for meat-eating preference(χ2=7.928, p= .005). The observance of troubling signs was different for a salty food preference(χ2=4.313, p= .038).
Conclusion:It is necessary to develop programs for taking care of people at risk for a Cerebrovascular Accident and test the effects of the programs in order to reduce the risk factors of CVA and enhance health behavior promotion.
