Abstract
Objective: To investigate family history of cardiometabolic diseases based differences in body mass index (BMI), waist-to-hip ratio (WHR), waist-to-height ratio (WHtR) and blood pressure (BP) of final year MBBS students.
Methodology: In this observational, cross-sectional study, 106 final year MBBS students were included after informed consent by simple random sampling technique. Based on family history suggestive of cardiometabolic diseases in first and /or second-degree relatives, participants were divided into two groups; Group I without family history of cardiometabolic disease and Group II with family history of cardiometabolic disease. Blood pressure (BP), weight, height, BMI, waist-hip ratio, waist-height ratio of were recorded. Comparison of the two groups was done using Chi-square test.
Results: Out of 106 students, 79(74.5%) were female and 27(25.3%) male. Mean age was 221.08 years. Group I comprised of 46(43.4%) participants. Of these, 14(30.46%) were males and rest females. Group II comprised of 60(56.6%) participants. Of these, 13 (21.6%) were males and the rest female. Except for waist-hip ratio (p=0.03), no statistically significant difference between the two groups was found.
Conclusion: Final year MBBS students with and without family history of cardiometabolic diseases differ significantly in terms of waist-hip ratio only when compared with reference to BMI, waist-hip ratio, waist-height ratio and blood pressure.

Key words: Cardio metabolic, diabetes mellitus, hypertension.
