  1. Relationship between anthropometric variables and lipid levels among school children : The Taipei Children Heart Study.

    Article - En anglais


    To evaluate the association between anthropometric parameters and lipid levels among Taiwanese school children.


    Using a probability-proportional-to size sampling and multi-stages sampling procedure, we sampled 1500 school children from 10 schools in Taipei city.

    Anthropometric parameters including body weight, body height, waist circumference, hip circumference and skinfolds were measured.

    Serum total cholesterol (CHOL), triglycerides (TG), high density lipoprotein-cholesterol (HDL-C), apolipoprotein Al and B (ApoAl and ApoB) were measured by standard methods, low density lipoprotein-cholesterol (LDL-C) and CHOL/HDL-C ratio were calculated by formula.


    We included in our analyses 1366 children (681 boys and 685 girls) with a mean age of 13.3y (from 12 to 16y) and with valid anthropometric and biochemical parameters.

    The boys had higher body height (P<0.0011 and larger body weight (P<0.05), waist circumference (P<0.01) and waist/hip ratio (WHR, P<0.0011 than the girls.

    However, the girls had larger skinfolds than the boys.

    After adjusting for age, girls had higher total CHOL, TG, HDL-C, LDL-C, ApoAl and ApoB concentrations than boys.

    In general, TG was positively associated with most anthropometric parameters (except body height) ; a similar negative association between HDL-C and anthropometric variables was noted. (...)
