Totally 154 teachers studied (staff of 2 general education schools of Tomsk) at the age of 21-71 y. Mean age 46,6±10,9. Response — 84%. Results.

... 8%) and just in 15% of those we found target levels of blood pressure during business day. Prevalence of smoking was 7,0%. We found a high prevalence of alimentary CVD risk factors. Two thirds of the staff were overweight (68,8%). Prevalence of excessive bodyweight was 33,1% and of obesity — 35,7%, of abdominal obesity — 40,2%. In teaching staff there was high level of hyperglycemia (12,1%), hypercholesterolemia (78,0%) and hypertriglyceridemia (32,0%). Insufficient physical activity was noted in 30% of teachers.
