Abstract: 

Obesity increases the risk of dyslipidemia, type-2 diabetes and hypertension, as well as is strongly predictor of coronary heart disease. Obesity has become a common factor among Iranian women due to the changed lifestyle factors. Accordingly, it is important to elucidate the prevalence of dyslipidemia of women 30-50 years old in Babol Iran. A systematic random sampling method was used to select 944 women age 30-50 years old from an urban area in Babol. Screening was done to select eligible women who fulfilled the selection criteria.
Abdominal obesity was observed in about 76.6% of subjects; in addition, the majority women (45.0%) were obese with BMI 30. The prevalence of hypercholesterolemia, high value LDL-cholesterol, and hypertriglyceride was 38.5%, 21.1% and 24.3%, respectively. Lower HD-cholesterol concentrations and higher HDL-cholesterol were 17.0% and 24.7%, respectively. The mean total cholesterol/ HDL-cholesterol were 3.90, and the prevalence of dyslipidemia was 51.8%. The factors; total cholesterol (200mg/dL), HDL-cholesterol (<50mg/dL), Triglycerides (200mg/dl), LDL-cholesterol (130mg/dl) and total cholesterol/ HDLcholesterol (>4) were not related to BMI.
A high prevalence of dyslipidemia and obesity was identified among middle-aged women, making dyslipidemia one of the major public health problems in Babol.
