CONVENTIONAL CARDIOVASCULAR AND METABOLIC RISK FACTORS IN YOUNG ADULTS WITH “CONCENSUS LEVEL-1 ABDOMINAL OBESITY CUT-OFF”

RAZA SHAHEED, SOURYA ACHARYA, SAMARTH SHUKLA, NEEMA ACHARYA.

Abstract
Background: Obesity is an important risk factor for development of cardiovascular diseases (CVD),
metabolic syndrome, and type II diabetes mellitus. It is conventionally measured by body mass index (BMI).
Other variables of measurements are waist circumference (WC), waist hip ratio (WHR) which predict CVD risk
better than BMI. The Consensus statement has given guidelines for various WC cut off levels and the action plan
there off for Indian population.To estimate the conventional Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) and Metabolic risk
factors (BMI, B.P, Fasting Blood Glucose, Triglycerides, HDL) in young adults with Level-1 WC consensus
cutoff.This cross sectional study will be carried out in DMIMS (DU), ABVR hospital which is a rural tertiary care
hospital. Consecutive Young adults (18-30) years [6] will be examined including University students, Residents
and Junior doctors. After detailed examination two groups will be formed for comparison. Group-1 will constitute
subjects with WC more than the Level-1 WC Consensus cut off ( Males with WC 78-89 cm and Females with
WC 72-79 cm) will be compared with Group-2 ( Males with WC

Key words: fasting blood glucose, WC, triglyceride, HDL, BMI
