Blood pressure (BP), glucose and lipid profile were examined in 108 adult Yemenite immigrants within a few weeks after their arrival in Israel. Mean systolic BP was 105.8 ± 15.21 mmHg and mean diastolic BP was 69.74 ± 12.25 mmHg. Glucose was 81.4 ± 30.49 mg/dl; total cholesterol was 167.54 ± 44.54 mg/dl and triglycerides 137.11 ± 94.9 mg/dl, while the small size of the group preclude drawing definitive conclusions, it can be said that BP as well as lipids level in this group were lower than in Yemenite immigrants who stepped off the magic carpet more than 45 years ago.
