The aim of the study was to present results of blood pressure measurement, portion of skeletal musculature, whole and visceral fat that were gained within the month of MOST 2008 during preventive examinations in the area of Slovakia. Blood pressure was measured in 562 consecutive persons; the portion of skeletal musculature and whole and visceral fat was determined bioimpendantly in 238 persons. We observed in both sexes age induced gradual increasing of systolic blood pressure while diastolic pressure did not increase with age. Body weight, BMI, whole and visceral fat of women increased with age and portion of skeletal musculature decreased. In middle age men we observed increase of average body weight and BMI, while with growing age the portion of whole fat continually increased and portion of portion of musculature gradually decreased. Apparently, the average value of visceral fat increased, at middle age it was higher than standard value and at higher age it was markedly increased. Regarding cardiometabolic risk, gradual increasing of body weight, whole and visceral fat with age is not appropriate. Significant increase of intra abdominal fat in middle age men and its gradual increasing up to value of high risk of type 2 diabetes are alarming.
