There was a significant relationship of fasting blood glucose mean in both groups with high job stress compare to those without job stress (P=0.0001). Those with high job stress smoke more than those without gob stress this result was statistically significant (P= 0.004). HDL mean of participants with high level of job stress was less than whom with low job stress and this difference was statistically significant (P= 0.007).
