Abstract: 

Objectives: The aim of this project was to evaluate the intensity of anxiety and its relation with hypertension, the level of serum lipids, and symptoms of cardiovascular diseases.
Method: 606 males and females between the ages of 35-65 residing in Tehran were selected by random-cluster sampling and participated as the subjects of this descriptive-cross sectional study. The subjects blood pressure, serum lipids (via enzymatic methods), and symptoms of cardiovascular diseases were evaluated by physicians. The intensity of their anxiety was determined by Zigmond and Snaith questionnaires. Data were analyzed by t-test, analysis of variance, and c2.
Findings: The intensity of anxiety was observed significantly more in women than men. There was a significant correlation between the intensity of anxiety with systolic and diastolic hypertension and low levels of HDL Cholesterol. However, there was not a significant correlation between the intensity of anxiety with total Cholesterol, LDL Cholesterol, and triglycerides. Neither was there a significant correlation between the intensity of anxiety with chest pain, palpitation, and myocardial failure.
Results: Presence of anxiety is related to some risk factors for cardiovascular diseases.
