The global epidemic of overweight and obesity is rapidly becoming a major public health problem in many parts of the world. Rapidly changing diets and lifestyles are fueling the global obesity epidemic. It is associated with an increased risk of developing various non-communicable diseases, including hypertension, coronary heart disease, diabetes, stroke and some forms of cancer. Obesity has been found to be associated with changes in levels of serum triglycerides and it may differ with age, sex, weight, height, BMI (Body Mass Index) and life style groups. This study aims at measuring and correlating values of serum triglyceride level in obese and non-obese individuals. It has been found that obese individuals having increased BMI and sedentary life style had high triglyceride level as compared to non-obese individuals. They are at high risk for CHD, so early detection of alteration in serum triglyceride level will prevent CHD and non-communicable diseases.

Key Words: Body mass index, Diabetes, Fat, Hypertension, Obesity
