ABSTRACT

Background: Obesity is a chronic health problem that is associated with several diseases and conditions including dyslipidemia. Dyslipidemia is the disruption of body lipids, which in turn is associated with the development of several diseases including cardiovascular diseases. Obesity prevalence is increasing and as a result dyslipidemia is rising. This study was done to assess the prevalence of dyslipidemia among obese patients. Methodology: This present study included 250 individuals, 150 of them were obese and 10 were non-obese in September 2018 to November 2018. The parameters of dyslipidemia were investigated for all participants. Results: The present study included 2 groups of participants, 40% were non-obese individuals and 60% were obese patients. There were significant differences (P-value ˂0.05) regarding total cholesterol, LDL, HDL and triglycerides among the two groups. Also, there were significant differences among the two groups regarding different types of dyslipidemia. Conclusion: The prevalence of dyslipidemia was high among obese patients and the most common type of dyslipidemia was hypercholesterolemia.
