ABSTRACT

Current prospective study was designed to evaluate the selective serological parameters in overweight children of 6-12 years (n=300) in Lahore, Pakistan. Anthropometric assessment was carried out. Blood samples were taken and lipid Profile, serum creatinine and Serum albumin analysis was done by using automated chemistry analyzer. Results concluded that the experimental subjects have shown a significant difference (P<0.00) in HDL level as compared to control subjects. Result of t test has shown significant increase (P<0.00) in total cholesterol and triglycerides level. Results have shown that there is highly significant correlation between body mass and serum creatinine level as P < 0.05. Serum albumin has also shown negative correlation with the weight of the children while serum creatinine has shown positive correlation with the weight of the children Pediatric obesity has reached to epidemic proportions in Pakistan. Overweight children usually become overweight adults which ultimately cause serious ailments including type 2 diabetes, renal diseases and hypertension in later age due to alteration of different serological parameters. In conclusion weight is associated with biochemical parameters. Any alteration in these parameters may cause health issues. Effective pediatric interventions are essential.
