Endothelial dysfunction is a key step in the initiation and progression of atherosclerosis. Few data with effects of lifestyle on endothelial function are available in healthy young people. Thus, we evaluated prospectively the association of lifestyle with endothelial function in university students. Endothelial function was assessed by digital reactive hyperemia peripheral arterial tonometry(RH-PAT), utilizing Endo-PAT 1500(Itamar Medical, Caesarea). All subjects(18.5±0.5 years)underwent questionnaires and reactive hyperemia index(RHI)measurements at the start of university life and after a 1-year and 2-year follow-up. The mean value of RHI was 2.00±0.63. No significant correlation between RHI values and physical activity, sleeping hours, skipping breakfast, current cigarette use, alcohol consumption, or body mass index was observed. In conclusion, poor lifestyle behaviors may be related to endothelial dysfunction in future postgraduate days.
