Abstract

Premenopausal black women have a 2- to 3-fold greater rate of coronary heart disease (CHD) than premenopausal white women. The purpose of this study was to provide greater insight into the reasons for this difference, which are currently unclear. We compared CHD risk factors in 99 black and 100 white, healthy premenopausal women, aged 18 to 45 years, and of relatively advantaged socioeconomic status. Compared with white women, black women had a higher body mass index (32.0 ± 9.2 vs 29.0 ± 9.4 kg/m2, p = 0.021), and higher systolic (124 ± 17 vs 115 ± 14 mm Hg, p
