Subjective social status and heart health linked in Hispanics / Latinos - Consumer Health News - Health Bollyinside - BollyInside

The researchers found that 46 percent of the population had ideal scores in four or more metrics of CVH. An increase in SSS was associated with a higher overall CVH score in multivariable-adjusted models (ß = 0.04) as well as an increased likelihood of ideal levels of body mass index, physical activity, and fasting blood glucose levels. The association between SSS and ideal smoking was modified by nativity and time in the United States. “When evaluating an individual’s cardiovascular health, we should consider their subjective experience. Clinicians could ask patients how they see themselves, and then ideally, we might have interventions that may help to elevate their sense of autonomy and self-perceived social status,” Piedra said in a statement. “As our findings indicate, subjective social status could provide especially important insights into the cardiovascular health of Hispanic/Latino people.”
