Abstract: 

Objective: Metabolic disturbances such as obesity, diabetes mellitus, and dyslipidemias are among the most important medical problems. Dysipidemias are among the most important causes of atherosclerosis and coronary heart disease (CHD). Exercise has protective effects against coronary arterial disease. Incidence of hyperlipidemia is high in Iran. This study was performed to delineate the level of physical activity and its influence on serum lipids.

Materials and Methods: An epidemiological cross-sectional study was carried out on about 11000 persons selected randomly in Tehran urban district 13 with a minimum age of 20 years and over. We measured fasting blood sugar, 2 hours after 75 grams oral glucose, triglyceride, total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, alkaline phosphatase and TSH. Degree of physical activity was registered according to the lipid research clinics classification and anthropometrical data were exactly delineated. Social status, family history and smoking were also delineated. Our patients were divided into two groups: those having normal lipid profile and dyslipidemics. The latter group was further divided into two subgroups: primary (without any risk factor for dyslipidemia) and secondary (having one or more risk factors such DM...).

Results: In our study the total prevalence of dyslipidemias was 68.5%. According to the degree of physical activity all participants were divided into three groups: Low (62.8%), moderate (13%) and high physical activity (24.2%). Prevalence of dyslipidemia was 69.4%, 68.5%, and 65.5% respectively.

Conclusion: The Tehran of population suffers from dyslipidemia. Low physical activity is one of the known causes of dyslipidemia and in our study this relation was delineated but also low physical activity found to be popular.
