Author(s): Menecier, Natalia1; Lomaglio, Delia Beatriz2

Excess body fat and its relationship to blood lipids, glucose and blood pressure, is associated with an increased risk of developing coronary and metabolic diseases. His early detection may prevent the onset of such diseases or allow early initiation of treatment. In 133 students from the National University of Catamarca, Argentina, cohorts 2011 to 2013, between 17 and 22 years, were analyzed: Weight, height, body mass index, blood glucose, total cholesterol, triglycerides and diastolic and systolic blood pressure. The analyzed students presented high prevalence of excess weight and cholesterolemia. To a lesser extent hyperglycemia, hypertriglyceridemia and hypertension. No statistically significant differences between sexes. There was a positive correlation of body mass index with glycemia and systolic blood pressure.
