Background: Patients with coronary heart disease should know the risk factors of the disease to manage their illnesses. This study aimed to investigate the relationship between knowledge of coronary heart diseases risk factors and health-promoting lifestyle in adults living in Tabriz City.
Methods: This descriptive correlational study was conducted on 346 adults older than 18 years that were selected by convenience sampling method from public places in Tabriz. The study data were collected by a demographic characteristics form, heart disease fact questionnaire (HDFQ) and health-promoting lifestyle profile (HPLPHII). Then the obtained data were analyzed by analysis of variance, the Independent t test, the Pearson correlation coefficient, and linear regression analysis in SPSS22.   
Results: The results showed that the knowledge of 57.51% of the participants about coronary heart disease risk factors was acceptable. Their mean (SD) score of health-promoting lifestyle was 136.30 (21.15) (at a moderate level). Spiritual growth dimension (M= 26.8) and physical activity dimension (M= 16.54) had the highest and lowest mean scores, respectively.  The results also showed a significant relationship between knowledge of coronary heart diseases risk factors and health-promoting lifestyle (P < 0.001). There was a significant relationship between the knowledge of coronary heart disease risk factors and variables of age, marital status, occupational status, economic status, history of diabetes, and lipid profile (P <0.05). However, health-promoting lifestyle was only associated with history of diabetes (P = 0.03).
Conclusion: Educational interventions at different levels of prevention could increase the knowledge of the patients about the risk factors of coronary heart disease and hopefully promote their lifestyle.
