Abstract

Introduction: There is a positive relationship between anthropometric indices and dyslipidemia. Considering the increasing prevalence of obesity in the society and its relationship with dyslipidemia and its high relative value in some reports from Ahvaz, Iran, the present study seeks to investigate the relationship between each single anthropometric index and the incidence of dyslipidemia in adults over age 20 in a cohort study. Material and Methods: This cohort study began in 2009, and 178 people out of the 772 initially-surveyed people no longer had dyslipidemia or other diseases that caused dyslipidemia in 2014 retest after five years, which was carried out using the fasting blood test and questionnaires. The questionnaires recorded participants’ age, height, weight, BMI, waist circumference, hip circumference and the ratios of these indices, and the data were analyzed in SPSS-22. Key words: Anthropometric Indices, Dyslipidemia, Incidence, Cohort Study, Iran.
