LORENZO-ERRO, Susana Margarita et al. Oral Health and Non communicable Diseases in patients of a higher education institution, Montevideo, Uruguay 2016. Part 1. Odontoestomatología [online]. 2020, vol.22, n.36, pp.55-64.  Epub 01-Dez-2020. ISSN 0797-0374.  http://dx.doi.org/10.22592/ode2020n36a7.

Non-communicable diseases (NCD) share behavioral and metabolic risk factors with oral diseases and both represent a public health problem.

Objective:

to find out the prevalence of NCD and its behavioral and metabolic risk factors in people who attend at College of Odontology of the University of the Republic.

Methods:

A Cross-sectional study was conducted and a questionnaire related to socio-demograhic characteristics and habits linked to behavioral risk factors was applied. Anthropometric measurements of arterial pressure and capillary glucose were taken,

Results:

The final sample were 602 individuals. A high prevalence of physical inactivity, problematic alcohol intake, excessive salt consumption, hypertension and diabetes was found. These figures were larger than those found at the national level.

Conclusions:

Due to the high prevalence of various risk factors, the installation of a preventive-educational program in the waiting rooms of the Faculty is recommended.
