BMI measurements can easily reflect any changes in the lipid concentration in the human body.
To determine relationship of serum lipids with body mass index among students of Zabeed Education Collage, Hudaiadah University, Yemen.
Materials and Methods
This study was conducted from May 2014 to December 2014, 210 male and female students aged 18–35 years of Zabeed Education College of Hudaidh participated in the study. Anthropometric measurements including weight, height, waist and hip circumferences were measured. Body Mass Index (BMI) was calculated. Fasting blood sugar and lipid profile including total cholesterol (TC), Low density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL), high density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL) and triglycerides (TG) were estimated. Socio-demographic data were collected from a questionnaire.
BMI of studied population ranged from 18.5 to 40 with mean value of 22.605 ± 4.4225. The WC was 30.499± 4.725. Mean value of blood pressure was 118±15.141, 80. 92±12.135. Mean value of TC. LDL, HDL, and TG were 160.05 ± 31.893 mg/dl, 92.288±28.7497, 47.550±12.2552, and 120.18±46.573 respectively. TC. TG and LDL were significantly among obese students in which found (179.78 ± 40.180 mmol/l; p=0.04), (153.56± 38.872; p=0.02) and (101.333±63.2166; p=0.018) respectively. Moreover systolic and diastolic blood pressure were highly significantly with p value were 0.015 and 0.001 respectively. However Mean HDL and FBS did not differ significantly among different groups.
BMI has a positive correlation with TC, TG, LDL, systolic and diastolic blood pressure whereas there was no correlation with HDL and FBS.
Lipid Profile, total cholesterol (TC), HDL, LDL, TG, BMI.
