Obesity, a chronic non communicable disorder is associated with abnormal, excessive body fat accumulation. Obesity has reached epidemic levels worldwide. It is a key risk factor in development of various dangerous complications like dyslipidaemia, diabetes mellitus, hypertension, cardiovascular diseases, infertility etc. This study aims at measuring and correlating values of blood lipid parameters in obese and non-obese individuals. It has been found that obese females having increased waist circumference, BMI and body fat percentage had altered lipid profile. They are at higher risk of developing obesity related complications. Thus, early detection of metabolic impairments will help in pursuing the preventive measure and to halt its progression into irreversible hazardous complications.
