The WHR of 97.2% of women and 26.3% of men was abnormal (>0.8 and 1 respectively). No statistically significance relation was seen between anthropometric measurements and hypertension.

Conclusion: obesity prevalence is significantly high in CVD patients and it appears that most of the women with CVD had central obesity and excess subcutaneous Truncal-abdominal fat and men had higher skin fold thickness.
