Abstract: Background Cardiovascular diseases (CVD) are a foremost cause of morbidity and mortality in Sudan and global with the rapid increasing prevalence, due to urbanization and changes in lifestyle. . Objective To investigate the cardiovascular disease risk factors among Sudanese who live in Khartoum state. Methods A case-control study was conducted in the Ahmed Gasim Hospital- Cardiac Surgery and renal Transplantation Center targeting the cardiovascular disease and were included patients who came for treatment or follow-up during 2015. A total of 162 patients with cardiovascular Disease (CVD) in Ahmed Gasim Hospital- Cardiac Surgery and renal Transplantation Center and 162 control who are not patients or have any history of cardiovascular diseases. They were interviewed using purposively designed questionnaires. Logistic regression has been used for modeling the probability that a cardiovascular Disease (CVD) could be developed as a function of risk factors. Results This study shows that high bold pressure, family history and lack of physical activity are the main risk factors of cardiovascular diseases in Khartoum states, Sudan. Conclusion Hypertension, family history of CVD and life style were found to be main risk factors
