In order to assess the relationship between obesity and serum lipids, a homogenous group of adult men and premenopausal women is assessed for body mass index, body fat distribution reflected by the waist/hip ratio (WHR), serum lipid parameters and apolipoproteins. Body fat distribution is distinguished in an abdominal and gluteal-femoral type using a cut-off point of 1.00 for the ratio of waist-to-hips girth for men. In women the cut-off value is considered as 0.80 but was also evaluated when considered as 0.85. In the next step tertiles for WHR are created to show a graded relationship bet…
