Summary. The aim of the study is to distribute patients with circulatory system diseases (or other chronic diseases) and healthy ones (naïve to diagnosed chronic diseases) according to body weight index and nutrition habits. 850 subjects attending municipal outpatient clinic/local health center were interviewed in the city of Krasnoyarsk in 2011.

Elevated body weight index was more frequently found in subjects with chronic diseases, first of all, with cardiovascular ones, when compared to healthy subjects.

In chronic patients, the problem of weight abuse arose since ôgreen yearsö, while for general population it is at the stage nearing old-age retirement that elevated body weight index became a matter of unrest.

Established diagnosis of a cardiovascular disease did not bring about any important favorable changes as far as more normal body weight was concerned. Interestingly enough, the worse was the situation with body weight index at the moment of diagnosis of a chronic disease, the less effective was the post-diagnosis control of this risk factor. This nuisance was most evident in women with circulatory system diseases.

Weight abuse is usually related to deviated nutrition habits. The respondents were interviewed for the priorities in forming the diet, and well-known recommendations for healthy feeding ranged only third in their responses, while pleasure was the first priority, and incomes affordable foods were to follow in this priority range.

Established diagnosis of a chronic circulatory system disease did not bring any important change of nutrition habits. Only from one forth to one third of the respondents tried to ameliorate their diet by enhancing the amount of recommended foods and by reducing salt consumption.

Keywords. Risk factors in circulatory system diseases; body weight index; nutrition habits.
