Author(s): Dr. Divesh Goyal
Abstract:Background: The present study was conducted to assess lipid profile level among healthy subjects and their relation with obesity. Materials & Methods: The present study was conducted on 284 healthy subjects of both gender. In all subjects, height, weight and BMI was calculated. Their total cholesterol, triglycerides, low density lipoproteins, high density lipoproteins and very low density lipoproteins was studied. Results: Out of 284 subjects, there were 190 males and 94 females. The mean cholesterol in males was 180.2 mg/dl and in females was 165.7 mg/dl, HDL was 40.6 mg/dl in males and 51.8 mg/dl in females, LDL was 110 mg/dl in males and 98.4 mg/dl in females, VLDL was 24.6 mg/dl in males and 22.8 mg/dl in females. The difference was significant (P< 0.05). Out of 284 subjects, there were 34 (11.9%) obese subjects. There was significant higher level of lipid profile in obese subjects as compared to healthy subjects. The difference among males and females was significant (P< 0.05). Conclusion: There was significant higher level of lipid profile in obese subjects as compared to healthy subjects.
