Description

The BEDA study is a study of cardiovascular disease in women, administered by the Section for Preventive Cardiology, University of Gothenburg. The background is that coronary heart disease and diabetes are important and common reasons for too early death in both women and men, but risk factors for coronary heart disease has not been so well described in women. Of those invited, 1413 women (81%) were investigated between November 1979 and February 1981. A new examination took place in 1997. Of 1201 invited women, 875 (73%) participated. The procedures for the second screening were similar to those of the first examination. The material has been used in both longitudinal analyses and as control groups in different case-control studies.

Purpose:

To study risk factors for cardiovascular disease and other diseases in women
