Obesity is a medical condition in which excess body fat accumulates in the body to an extent that it may have a negative effect on health. The prevalence of obesity has been increasing tremendously worldwide. It is one of the major causes of co-morbidities including the most common one; dyslipidemia, which involves decreased levels of high density lipoprotein (HDL), elevated levels of low density lipoprotein (LDL) and hypertriglyceridemia. The current review aimed at summarizing the prevalence, risk factors of obesity, dyslipidemia as well as correlation between them and their management. Online scientific databases were used to search for articles related to the current subject using specific keywords such as obesity or dyslipidemia, obesity, and dyslipidemia. A total of 30 articles were obtained, 10 of them compromising of both original and review articles were considered for the final analysis.
