English Abstract

Objectives: The aim of the present study was to investigate the relationship between health risk behavior and the prevalence of the metabolic syndrome (MetS) among aborigines in Chia-yi county. Methods: This cross-sectional study collected related information from aboriginals attending an integrated screening program in Chia-yi county. The instruments included a physical examination, a serum biochemical test and an integrated screening service questionnaire. Results: A total of 725 aboriginal subjects were enrolled. The prevalence of alcohol consumption was the highest at 60%. The prevalence rate for MetS was 42.6%; it was 43.5% for females, which was higher than for males at 41.5%. Using logistic regression, we found that an older age, a lower education level, drinking alcohol and chewing betel quid were related to a statistically significant greater risk of MetS. Conclusions: These results indicate that the prevalence rates for health risk behaviors and MetS among aborigines in Chia-yi county have increased. This result will be useful as references for future health providers and help the system to plan health prevention programs for MetS among aborigines.
