Keywords:BMI, Lipid Profile, Metabolic Syndrome, Obesity, Dyslipidemia
Background: Sedentary daily life have an impact on the prevalence and incidence of metabolic syndrome disorder and results in development of type 2 diabetes mellitus, Dyslipidemia and metabolic disorders that aggravate the risk in the development of cardiovascular diseases (CVD).
Methods: In our study Data of 92 males and 112 females, from the age group of 25 to 55 years were selected from December 2018 to July 2019 in a cross sectional manner. Blood sample (3 ml) was collected from each subject. Serum was separated by centrifuging blood at 3000 rpm for 10 min and analyzed for lipid profile by Siemens Dimension RXL max, wet chemistry analyzer. Body mass index (BMI) was calculated as weight in kilograms divided by the square of height in meters.
Results: In our hospital based study we estimated the lipid profile in individuals categorized into two groups. (Group 1 BMI <25) and (Group 2 BMI ?25), we found the values of Triglycerides, LDL and VLDL in Group 1 are lower as compared to Group 2 values for same analytes.
Conclusion: Our study found positive correlation between lipid profile and obesity. Results of this cross sectional study again prove that, Obesity predisposes individuals to metabolic syndrome associated ailments.
