The purpose of this investigation was to determine cardiovascular risk factors in
middle-age adults male with different abdominal obesity and physical activity
levels. 40 males aged 35 to 55 years divided to four groups. Group 1
:(physically active with high WHR), group2: (physically active with low WHR),
group3: (non-active with high WHR), group 4: (non-active with low WHR).
Physical activity was assessed using beck's standardized questionnaire .Risk
factors included C-reactive proteins levels( CRP), high density lipoprotein (HDL)
cholesterol and low density lipoproteins (LDL)and total cholesterol (TC) were
assessed by taking blood samples and waist to hip ratio(WHR) determined as
an abdominal obesity index. Data analyzed using two-way ANOVA, (P≤0.05).
No significant differences were seen in risk factors included HDL, LDL and TC
levels (P≥0.05).In adults with high & low WHR, the CRP levels were
significantly different (P≤0.05)in all groups. Our data suggest that in spite of
physical activity levels, abdominal obesity is effective on CRP levels in middleaged
adults male.
