Relationship of waist hip ratio with selected biochemical parameters of middle aged males of Punjab

AUTHOR(S): Kullbeer Singh and Dr. Jasmel Kaur
ABSTRACT:
The objective of the study was to find out the Relationship of waist hip ratio with selected biochemical parameters of middle aged males of Punjab. The study was conducted on middle aged males (aged 40 to 45 years) of Punjab. A total fifty (N=60) middle aged males of Punjab was selected as subject. All the subjects were selected from different region of Punjab having no medical history. These Subjects were selected in terms of cluster sample from the all the region of Punjab. The necessary data on selected biochemical parameters (Total Cholesterol, Triglycerides, High Density Lipoprotein (HDL) and Low Density Lipoprotein (LDL)) were collected by administration of laboratory tests for selected biochemical parameters. The tests were administered after giving them instruction and taking consent from the subjects. Biochemical parameter test were taken place after 8 to 10 hours of fasting. The data pertaining to each of the selected biochemical parameters (Total Cholesterol, Triglycerides, High Density Lipoprotein (HDL) and Low Density Lipoprotein (LDL) were examined by Person’s Product Moment Correlation in order to observe the significant relationship, if any. The level of significance to test the hypothesis was 0.05. P < 0.05. The analysis of the data revealed that there was significant relationship existed between blood cholesterol and Waist Hip Ratio. As coefficient of correlation in case of waist hip ratio and blood cholesterol was 0.95* which was more than the required value (0.25). P value (0.0001) was less then significant value (0.05). In case of Triglycerides levels, there was significant relationship existed between Triglycerides and Waist Hip Ratio. As coefficient of correlation in case of waist hip ratio and Triglycerides was 0.95* which was more than the required value (0.25). P value (0.0001) was less then significant value (0.05). It is also evident that there was significant negative relationship existed between HDL and Waist Hip Ratio. As coefficient of correlation in case of waist hip ratio and HDL was -0.95* which was more than the required value (0.25). P value (0.0001) was less then significant value (0.05). In other case it is evident that there was significant Positive relationship existed between LDL and Waist Hip Ratio. As coefficient of correlation in case of waist hip ratio and LDL was 0.99* which was more than the required value (0.25). P value (0.0001) was less then significant value (0.05). On the basis of finding of the study I was concluded that there was significant positive relationship of waist hip ratio with total cholesterol level, triglyceride level and Low density lipoprotein level of middle aged males of Punjab. It shows high association between waist hip ratio and total cholesterol level, triglyceride level and Low density lipoprotein level. There was significant negative relationship of waist hip ratio with High density lipoprotein level of middle aged males of Punjab.
