Abstract: Objective -The consensus among specialists is that cardiovascular diseases are multifactorial in origin, resulting from socalled risk factors 1 . Once risk factors are understood to be causal agents resulting in a predisposition towards heart diseases, monitoring of these risk factors aids in the identification of signals that, if modified, may attenuate or even reverse the evolution of heart diseases.Compromising levels of plasma lipids-lipoproteins, high arterial pressure, and excessive fat/body weight ratio… Show more

“…La aparición de niveles elevados de LDL-C estuvo asociada al consumo excesivo de grasa saturada en ambos sexos. a una menor predisposición a los factores de riesgo para enfermedades cardiovasculares en adultos 2,4 . Sin embargo, no todos estos resultados hallados fueron confirmados en poblaciones pediátricas [5][6][7] .…”

“…According to some investigations, such alterations are due to the influence of physical exercise on the activity of the lipoprotein lipase enzyme, which is increased in the active individuals [31][32][33][34] . Classical studies show that decreased blood HDL-cholesterol levels increase the risk of developing coronary artheriosclerosis 35,36 .…”

“…Such diseases are usually characterized by a multifactor etiology and by the incipient knowledge state on the etiological and physiopathological mechanisms that lead to the occurrence and development of such diseases, damaging the production of a systematic and coherent intervention in public health (17) . There is a consensus that several chronic pathologies may be prevented and controlled with the monitoring of some risk conditions, since they facilitate the identification of previous signs that when modified, may diminish or even revert the evolution process of dysfunctions (18) . The investigated groups presented homogeneous charac- teristics before the intervention, once no significant difference was observed between G1 and G2 (p > 0,05) in relation to the RF for NTCD in this phase.…”
