Cardiometabolic risk factors in Iranians with spinal cord injury: Analysis by injury-related variables

Hadis Sabour, MD, PhD, et al.

Persons with spinal cord injury (SCI) have increased prevalence of abnormalities in carbohydrate and lipid metabolism. The objective of this study was to determine the prevalence of cardiometabolic risk factors in people with SCI based on injury-related variables. Waist circumference, level of injury, cholesterol intake, and polyunsaturated fatty acid intake were positive predictor factors. Conventional risk factors for coronary heart disease should be identified and treated in individuals with SCI.
