Risk Factors of Coronary Artery Disease: A Comparative Study among the Two Populations of Faridabad

The aim of this study was to investigate the prevalence of coronary risk factors among Jaat (n=50) and Vysya men(n=50) in two populations of Faridabad, namely Vaishya males (n=50) and Jaat males (n=50). The age of the study subjects was ≥20 years. A significantly higher prevalence of general obesity(P=0.000), hypertension (P=0.02), and positive family history of CAD(P=0.03) were observed in Vysya when compared to Jaat men. The results of the present study suggest that a population-specific than a global approach should be pursued in the screening of high-risk groups for the prevention of CAD in our country.
