Abstract

Background: Due to the importance of identifying and preventing non-communicable
diseases, especially obesity and overweight, this study was performed to investigate the
relationship between A Body Shape Index (ABSI) and dyslipidemia.
Objectives: This study was performed to investigate the relationship between A Body
Shape Index (ABSI) and dyslipidemia.
Methods: This cross-sectional study was conducted on 300 patients. Eligible
individuals were selected using convenience sampling. The participants’ height and
waist circumference were measured. The results of these measurements as well as other
demographic information, reason for referral, blood sugar, Low Density Lipoprotein
(LDL), High Density Lipoprotein (HDL), Triglyceride (TG), and cholesterol levels, and
blood pressure were recorded in a checklist that was designed based on the research
objectives. The obtained data were then entered into the SPSS 11 software and analyzed
using independent sample t-test and Pearson’s correlation coefficient at the 0.05
significance level.
Results: This study was conducted on 300 patients with the mean age of 41.6 ± 7.17 years.
The means of body mass index and ABSI were 27.10 ± 4.40 kg/m2 and 0.082 ± 0.006,
respectively. The mean of ABSI was significantly higher in the patients who had high
TG levels as well as sugar levels higher than 100 mg/dL compared to those with low TG
and blood sugar levels (P = 0.03 and P = 0.02, respectively). However, this parameter was
significantly lower in the patients with low HDL levels compared to those with high HDL
levels (P = 0.02). ABSI was significantly correlated to fasting blood sugar (r = 0.15, P =
0.008) and TG (r = 0.12, P = 0.02).
Conclusion: The study results indicated that ABSI was correlated to the serum levels
of TG and fasting blood sugar. Additionally, the mean of ABSI was higher among the
patients with diabetes compared to the others.
