    Abstract: Objective: This study was aimed to explore the association of health behavior, attitude and health status among aged 40 and above adults.Method: The questionnaire developed by Bureau of Health Promotion, Department of Health was adopted to explore health situations among adults in District of Fengyuan, Taichung City. SPSS software was used for descriptive analysis, chi-square test and logistic regression. Results: A total of 413 cases were enrolled in this study. There were 103 cases with hypertension history, 47 cases with diabetes history, and 7 cases with high cholesterol history. Current statuses with hypertension were 133 cases, diabetes 66 cases, and high cholesterol 85 cases. Among those, high cholesterol cases increased most. This study indicated that with the older age, hypertension increased and so did diabetes and obesity (waistline: male over 90 cm, female over 80 cm). Risk health behaviors (cigarette smoking, alcohol consuming, and betel but chewing) were associated with obesity. Obesity cases had higher odds of poor health status (Odds Ratio: 2.099). The more disease history the cases had, they had higher odds of suffering from any of hypertension, diabetes, and high cholesterol (Odd Ratio: 2.275). Male cases were more tended to have hypertension (Odds Ratio: 1.712). Obesity cases were more tended to hypertension (Odds Ratio: 2.214). Cases had more disease history had higher odds of hypertension (Odds Ratio: 2.443), diabetes (Odds Ratio: 4.596). Among 277 cases that did not have disease history, gender and obesity were statistically associated with their health status. Conclusion and suggestion: With older age, percentage of hypertension, diabetes, high cholesterol and obesity were higher. Our study also found that among those cases aged 51-60, percentage of high cholesterol was the highest, but with older age, the percentage was becoming lower. Future analysis could be conducted to explore the reasons.
