The effects of gender and age on associations between blood lipid levels and obesity in Danish men and women aged 35-45 years.
The purpose of the study was to assess the influence of gender and age on the associations between different measures of obesity, and blood lipid levels.
Overall obesity (body fat, body fat percentage and body mass index) or abdominal obesity (waist/hip-ratio, waist/thigh-ratio and waist-circumference) and lipid levels [high density lipoprotein (HDL), low density lipoprotein (LDL), very low density lipoprotein (VLDL), total cholesterol and triglyceride level] were measured in 1987/88 in a random Danish population sample of men and women (N=2987), aged 35, 45, 55 and 65 yr.
All lipid levels were dependent on gender and age.
