Background: Obesity leads to morbidity as well as mortality. There is usually increased level of total Background: Obesity leads to morbidity as well as mortality. There is usually increased level of total cholesterol, LDL- cholesterol, VLDL- cholesterol, triglycerides and decreased level of HDL- cholesterol in obesity. These are the risk factors for cardiovascular disease, hypertension, diabetes mellitus, pulmonary disorder and gall stones. Method: In this cross sectional study, patients admitted in GGH General Hospital, Jamnagar between May 2012 and April 2013 were taken. a total of 105 patients were included. Parameters like serum cholesterol, serum triglycerides, serum HDL, serum LDL & serum VLDL used. Obesity index BMI measured using standard protocol. Both systolic & diastolic Blood pressure measured Result: significant raised in total cholesterol & triglycerides noted in obese as compare to non obese. LDL- cholesterol was also increased significantly. But HDL cholesterol was significantly raised in non obese. Significant raised in systolic & diastolic blood pressure noted in obese as compare to non obese In conclusion, abnormal lipid profiles are more common among obese patients. Elevated cholesterol, triglycerides, LDL & VLDL seen in obese patients. , elevation of blood pressure is more in obese as compare to non obese.
