Abstract

Introduction: obesity is a major contributor to the prevalence of cardiovascular disease in the developed world and yet has only recently been afforded the same level of attention as other risk factors of coronary artery disease. Hemoglobin level and pattern of food intake is closely associated with risk of cardiovascular diseases. The cardiovascular diseases are primarily may be due to altered lipid profile which is depend on type and pattern of food intake. Association of vegetarian and non-vegetarianisms in obese female is controversial.
Method: The study was conducted on vegetarianism and non-vegetarianism obese female. A total of 55 subjects were enrolled (35 cases and 20 control) for the study. The Anthropometric measurements viz. height, weight, BMI and WHR, BP, were taken and hemoglobin level (Hg %) was assessed in vegetarian and non-vegetarianism obese women.
Results: Our results showed that hemoglobin level (HB %) in non-vegetarianism obese women was (13.25±1.08) high than vegetarian (10±1.2) obese women. The blood pressure systolic and diastolic was higher in the non-vegetarian obese women than vegetarians’ obese female. There were no significant difference was found in heart rate in both groups i.e. vegetarianism and non-vegetarianism obese female. The Blood pressure systolic and diastolic was (126.63± 7.3 and 88.26±6.33) and (130.72± 8 and 85.52±4.81) in Vegetarian Non-vegetarian respectively.
Discussion: Thus Hemoglobin Level (Hg %) of non-vegetarianism were high in obese women than vegetarian. Due to Some nutrients intake, hemoglobin level was better in non-vegetarians than vegetarians.
