Introdution: Hypertriglyceridemic waist is an indirect predictor of caridiometabolic risk.

Objective: To analyze the factors associated to the presence of hypertriglyceridemic waist in hypertensive woman with overweight.

Methods: A transversal study that included hypertensive and overweight female, with ages above 18 years old. The limiting points for the hypertriglyceridemic waist diagnose followed the criteria established by the National Cholesterol Evaluation Program for Adult Treatment Panel III, for females: waist circumference of ≥ 88 cm and triglycerides ≥ 150 mg/dL. The prevalence reasons were estimated and their respective confidence intervals were of 95%. To identify the factors associated to hypertriglyceridemic waist were used as a logistic regression model adopting a significance level of 5%

Results: The presence of hypertriglyceridemic waist was frequently seen in woman that smoked (PR: 1.74; p = 0.003) and for woman with higher Framingham scores (p < 0.001). These woman also presented age (p = 0.001) and biochemical parameters more elevated, such as glycemia (p = 0.001) and total cholesterol (p = 0.007) and lower high density lipoproteins (HDL) (p < 0.001). After multivariate regression analysis, the variables resulting from the final model were glycemia (p = 0.0242), total cholesterol (p = 0.0004), HDL (p = 0.0007), age (p =0.0324) and smoking habits (p = 0.0218).

Conclusions: The factors associated significantly to the presence of hypertriglyceridemic waist in the samples studied were: fasting hyperglycemia, hypercholesterolemia and low serum levels of HDL.
