Abstract
This study was carried out to evaluate the correlation between serum lipids level, dietary intake and weight for length Index(WLI) which are cardiovascular risk factors, on 182 middle school children. Information on the general characteristics of the children were collected by questionnaire self recorded, the serum lipids level was measured by the enzyme method, and dietary intake was measured by a 24-hours recall method. All data were analyzed by means of X2-test, Pearson Correlation and Mean. The following findings were obtained from the study: 1. Twenty two subjects out of the 182(12%) turned out to have obesity according to WLI criterion. 2. The correlation between mother’s education, level and WLI was statistically significant, whereas the correlation between other environmental factors and WLI was not statistically significant. 3. The Correlations between nutrient intake and WLI, nutrient intake and serum lipids level were not significant- Serum TG level and WLI, however, showed positive correlation and serum HDLC level and WLI did negative correlation. 4. WLI and TG/PchE ratio, WLI and TG/HDLC ratio, and WLI and PchE/HDLC ratio revealed positive correlation. However, the correlation between WLI and TC/TG ratio was negative. The correlation between WLI and TG/HDLC ratio was stronger than any other indices. 5. Serum TC level and HDLC level, and serum TC level and PchE level were positively correlated, whereas serum TG level and HDLC level was negatively correlated. 6. The correlation between nutrient intake and serum lipids level was not statistically significant.
