Abstract :

Weight-to-height ratio (WtHR) as a central adiposity marker is well-established in predicting cardio-metabolic risk in adults, nevertheless, epidemiological data for this association in children are still not well defined. Cross-sectional study was conducted in October-December 2018 on adolescents aged 10-16 years in SMP Negeri 1 Kabanjahe, North Sumatera, Indonesia. Students with BMI ≥ P85th and met the inclusion and exclusion criterias were randomly selected. Sample were divided into two groups (WtHR <0.6 and WtHR ≥0.6) and lipid profile examination were subsequently performed. Data were available for 63 subjects consisted of 10 (15,9%) overweight students and 53 (84.1%) obese students. Based on WtHR, the subjects were categorised as WtHR <0.6 and ≥0.6 which were 34 (54%) and 29 (46%), respectively. Elevated total serum cholesterol levels, elevated serum triglycerides levels, elevated serum low-density lipoproteins (LDL) levels, and decreased serum high-density lipoproteins (HDL) levels were observed among 51.4% (P=0.451;OR=1.7), 51.1% (P=0.279; OR=2.3), 52.9% (P=0.348;OR=1.8), and 31.6% (P=0.216; OR= 0.4) of subjects with WtHR ≥0.6, respectively. The mean value for WtHR for all the subjects was 0.59 (range: 0.50-0.75). The mean values for total cholesterol, HDL, LDL and triglycerides were 175.44mg/dl, 51.27mg/dl, 114.40 mg/dl, and 122.75 mg/dl, respectively. Chi square test were carried out with 95% confidence interval and P<0.05 was defined as statistically significant. There is no statistically significant association found between WtHR and the lipid profile of overweight and obese adolescents in this study.
