In isolated ethnic groups, the epidemiology of cardiovascular diseases (CVD) is yet unclear. The purpose of this research is to examine the impact of environmental, dietary, and endogamous variables on the prevalence of cardiovascular disease risk factors. To conduct a cross-sectional research on healthy individuals. Enzymatic techniques were used to assess glycaemia and lipids, and the results were analyzed using Body Mass Index and Blood Pressure. Animal proteins, saturated and unsaturated fats, sodium chloride, monosodium glutamate, and refined sugar are more prevalent in metropolitan foods than in rural ones. They are more sedentary and had higher BMI, DBP, and SBP levels (p 0.0001). There is a 1.5 times greater frequency of pre-HT, stage I/II HT, and atherosclerosis among city residents compared to those in rural areas, where the atherogenicity index is lower (2,77 vs 3,84). According to our results, none of the people in the study were underweight or malnourished. Despite this, cardiovascular risk variables like as CT, TG, CDL-C/HDL-C, glycaemia, and blood pressure rise as a result of lifestyle changes associated with urbanization among city dwellers. There is no evidence to suggest that the characteristics of the population under research make them more immune to these diseases than other populations.
