Abstract

INTERRELATIONSHIP BETWEEN PERCENT BODY-FAT DERIVED FROM SKIN-FOLD THICKNESS & SERUM CHOLESTEROL LEVEL

Kanvinde.M.R*, and Dr. V.V.Kanhere

ABSTRACT

Purpose: Skinfold thickness is a useful indicator of body-fat. Skinfold thickness along with percent body fat is useful indicators of obesity. Percent body-fat can be easily derived from triceps skinfold thickness and sub-scapular skinfold thickness. Increased serum cholesterol and obesity are independently related to increase skinfold thickness. Material and Method: This study was carried out on100 normal subjects from civil hospital, sangli. Interrelationship between percent body-fat, derived from skinfold thickness and serum cholesterol level was found out. While carrying out this work, the socio-economic status and nutritional status was taken into consideration. In this study, the parameters included were skinfold thickness, serum cholesterol level, percent body-fat, weight, height, chest circumference and blood pressure. Result: Percent body-fat, derived from skinfold thickness increase in females than in males, with increasing age. Skinfold thickness was found in a descending order at various sites. i.e. triceps region, abdominal region, thigh region, sub-scapular region, juxta-nipple region, fore-arm region, calf of the leg and mid – axillary region. After doing statistical analysis, it was found that there is slight significant correlation in males (P<0.05) but shows a highly significant correlation in females (P < 0.01). Conclusion: There is a close relationship was found in between percent body-fat, derived from skinfold thickness and serum cholesterol.

Keywords: Skinfold thickness, percent body-fat, serum cholesterol level.
