Elevated Resting Heart Rate is Associated with Dyslipidemia in Middle-aged and Elderly Chinese
Abstract: Objective To study the relationship between resting heart rate and blood lipid level.
Methods A total of 9 415 subjects aged≥40 years were included in the present study. Their resting heart rate was monitored and their serum levels of triglyceride (TG), total cholesterol (TC), low density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) and high density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) were measured to define dyslipidemia according to the 2007 Chinese Guidelines on Prevention and Treatment of Dyslipidemia in Adults.
Results The subjects were divided into group A with their resting heart rate<70 beats/min, group B with their resting heart rate=70-79 beats/min, group C with their resting heart rate=80-89 beats/min, and group D with their resting heart rate≥90 beats/min. High TG, TC, and LDL-C were presented across the resting heart rate (Ptrend<0.01). Multiple logistic regression analysis revealed that the risk of high TG and TC was higher in subjects with their resting heart rate≥90 beats/min than in those with their resting heart rate<70 beats/min (OR=1.42;95%CI:1.16-1.74 and OR=1.33;95%CI:1.09-1.64, respectively).
Conclusion Elevated resting heart rate is associated with high TG and TC in middle-aged and elderly Chinese subjects.
