Introduction: There is controversial relationship between calcium and magnesium intake with obesity and hypertension. The aim of this study was relationship between dietary calcium and magnesium intake with anthropometric indices and hypertension in Prinzmetal angina syndrome patients and healthy person.

Methods: In this case - control study, 34 patients with Prinzmetal angina syndrome and 31 healthy persons at aged 60-40 years were selected int Khomeini hospital of Ardabil city, 2013-14.  Demographic information were collected using a questionnaire. Blood pressure and anthropometric parameters were measured using appropriate methods. 24-hour recall questionnaire used to assess dietary calcium and magnesium intake. Data were analyzed using Chi-square, Mann-Whitney and Pearson correlation tests.

Results: The mean of blood pressure and waist-to-hip ratio in patient group significantly were higher than control group (p<0.05).  But the mean of calcium and magnesium intake in patient group significantly were less than control group (p<0.05).  There were correlations among calcium intake with hypertension and body mass index and magnesium intake with body mass index in patient group (p<0.05). There was no significant association among weight, waist-to-hip ratio and waist circumference with calcium intake in patient group.

Conclusions: Our study results indicate that there was inverse relation among dietary calcium and magnesium with body mass indexes, and dietary calcium with blood pressure in Prinzmetal angina patients.
