Author(s): Arvind T*

Abstract

The importance of vitamin D status as a novel risk factor for various chronic diseases has gained more interest. Recently hypercholesterolemia and hypertension are found to be more prevalent in not only obese but also in non-obese individuals. Also, the association between Vitamin D status and metabolic syndrome has been one area of recent study. This study was done to identify if there is any significant relationship between vitamin D and body mass index (BMI). It was found that obese subjects, who had a BMI ranging from 30 to 40 had a higher vitamin D level when compared to non-obese subjects, who had a BMI <30 and it was statistically significant. When compared to non-obese with obese and there was a positive correlation between BSA and BMI. Vitamin D total cholesterol, calcium levels were significantly more in obese when compared to non-obese. The average VLDL and LDL were high in obese, and HDL was low in obese when compared to the non-obese.
