Abstract
Objectives: - To study fasting blood glucose levels in relation with WHR & to compare central obesity in pre and post menopausal women for risk of development of type 2 D.M.
Material and Method: Fasting blood glucose levels were estimated in 100 asymptomatic middle aged women. WHR was derived using waist circumference & hip circumference in the same subjects. Correlation of Fasting blood glucose levels with WHR was found between pre & post menopausal women by using analysis of variance.
Result: In the entire subject population (n=100), a statistically significant difference of age & Fasting Blood Glucose was found between pre & post menopausal women. But there is no statistically significant difference of WHR was found between pre & post menopausal women.
Conclusion: Central obesity is common in both pre & post-menopausal women i.e. menopausal status may not be correlated with central obesity. It is advocated that early life style modifications in premenopausal age to reduce the risk of development of type 2 D.M. in middle aged women.

Key words: Fasting blood glucose,central obesity,menopause
