Introduction: Left ventriculor hypertrephy (LVH) is one of the complicotions of systemic hypertension. LVH increases probabiltis of cardiac arrhytmia and cardiovasculer event in hypertensive patiants. In addition to hypertension other factors such as dyslipidemia, hyperglicemia and renal failure can cause LVH. This study was designed to investigate the effects of Body Mass Index (BMI) and some laboratory factors on LVH. Materials and Methods: This is a case-control study in which patients in case group (hypertensive patients with LVH) and patients in control group (hypertensive patients without LVH) were compared for BMI, dyslipidemia, hyperglycemia, and elevated Blood Urea Nitrogen (BUN) and Creatinin. Data was analyzed using Chi square test and logistic regression. Results: BMI with, high blood glucose with, high BUN and Creatinin signiticant affect in LVH presentation in hypertensive patiants. Dyslipidemia had not signiticant affect. Conclusion: In this study BMI, hyperglicemia, high BUN and Creatinin affected LVH presention in hypertensive patiant. So it is recommended that these factors be carfuly monitored and and treated.
