    Description

    Diabetes, hypertension, and hypercholesterolemia are three of the major risk factors for the development of cardiovascular disease (CVD), a leading cause of death in the United States. The burden of these disorders is not uniform across the country primarily due to socioeconomic status, cultural practices, and lifestyle. To evaluate the effect of these disparities, this study compared the prevalence of the 3 conditions in a subpopulation in the US with that of the general population. The Old Order Amish (OOA) community located in rural Pennsylvania is characterized by distinctive sociocultural practices that include a very cohesive social structure and limited use of modern technologies and medication. A total of 5377 OOA individuals took part in a community-wide survey which included a physical exam and fasting blood draw. The prevalence of the 3 risk factors in the Amish was then compared to the European Caucasian subsample of the 2013–2014 US National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES). This dataset includes demographics, physical examination values, medication history, clinical measures associated blood pressure, cholesterol, and glucose, and statistical assessment and comparison data.
