Abstract

To understand mechanisms of association between hemoglobin and cardiovascular disease (CVD), the relationships between hemoglobin and CVD risk factors were examined in 5115 black and white men and women who participated in the Coronary Artery Risk Development in Young Adults (CARDIA) Study. Hemoglobin was higher in men than women, whites than blacks, and smokers than non-smokers (p < 0.001). After adjusting for age,body mass index, current smoking status, and clinical center, hemoglobin correlated with diastolic blood pressure (0.11 less than or equal to r less than or equal to 0.22, p < 0.001) and plasma total cholesterol (0.08 less than or equal to r less than or equal to 0.11, p < 0.01)in all four race-sex groups and with systolic blood pressure in an but black women (0.07 less than or equal to r less than or equal to 0.13, p < 0.05). Among other factors possibly related to CVD risk, only serum albumin and white blood cell count showed significant correlationswith hemoglobin in all groups (0.19 less than or equal to r less thanor equal to 0.27, 0.07 less than or equal to r less than or equal to 0.18, respectively). These findings suggest that an association of hemoglobin with CVD risk factors may explain the association of hemoglobin with CVD.
