Correlation of Body Mass Index and Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis of Total Body Fat with Serum Lipid Profile

Siti Nurbaya, Yusra Yusra, Fathia Azzahra

Abstract


Since dyslipidemia is a known primary factor that can cause cardiovascular disease, it is important to evaluate the parameters of serum lipid profile. Determination of body mass index (BMI) and total body fat using the impedance method can be applied as an indirect strategy to predict body fat. Both these methods are easy to perform and can be used by the community. The aim of this study was to determine the relationship of BMI and total body fat measured using the impedance method with serum lipid profile. Using a cross-sectional study design, 128 subjects were recruited in this investigation and their lipid profiles were evaluated at the Clinical Pathology Laboratory, Cipto Mangunkusumo National Hospital, Jakarta. Body weight, height, and total body fat using the impedance method were measured. Lipid profile data, i.e., the levels of triglycerides, total cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, and LDL cholesterol, were obtained from the Clinical Pathology Laboratory information system in April–Juni 2016. Data were analyzed by the Pearson test to determine the relationship of BMI and total body fat measured using the impedance method with serum lipid profile. The results showed no significant correlation between BMI and serum lipid profile (P > 0.5), no significant correlation was found between total body fat and serum lipid profile (P > 0.5) and no correlation was found in each group of subjects with normal and high total body fat. In conclusion there is no association of BMI and total body fat with the lipid profile parameters, including the levels of triglycerides, total cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, and LDL cholesterol (p>0.05).

Keywords: body mass index, impedance method, serum lipid profile, total body fat.

 

Hubungan Indeks Massa Tubuh dan Lemak Total Menggunakan Metode Bioelectric Impedansi dengan Profile Lipid Serum

Abstrak

Dislipidemia merupakan faktor primer yang dapat menyebabkan penyakit kardiovaskular, sehingga evaluasi parameter profil lipid serum perlu dilakukan. Indeks massa tubuh (IMT) dan total lemak tubuh metode impedansi merupakan cara untuk memprediksi lemak tubuh secara tidak langsung. Kedua cara ini merupakan metode yang mudah dan dapat digunakan masyarakat. Penelitian bertujuan mencari hubungan IMT dan total lemak tubuh metode impedansi dengan profil lipid serum. Penelitian menggunakan desain penelitian potong lintang pada 128 subyek yang memeriksakan profil lipidnya ke Laboratorium Patologi Klinik, RSUPN dr. Cipto Mangunkusumo (RSUPNCM). Subyek diukur berat badan, tinggi badan, total lemak tubuh dengan metode impedansi. Data profil lipid, yaitu trigliserida, kolesterol total, kolesterol-HDL, dan kolesterol- LDL, diperoleh dari sistem informasi Laboratorium Patologi Klinik RSUPNCM pada bulan April– Juni 2016. Data diolah dengan uji Pearson untuk mengetahui hubungan IMT dan total lemak tubuh metode impedansi dengan profil lipid serum. Hasil tidak terdapat hubungan yang bermakna antara IMT dan profil lipid serum (P > 0,5), tidak ditemukan adanya hubungan yang bermakna antara total lemak tubuh dengan profil lipid serum (P > 0,5) dan tidak didapatkan juga hubungan pada setiap kelompok subyek dengan total lemak tubuh normal dan tinggi. Disimpulkan tidak terdapat hubungan IMT dan total lemak tubuh metode impedansi dengan parameter profil lipid, meliputi trigliserida, kolesterol total, kolesterol-HDL, dan kolesterol-LDL (p>0,05).

Kata Kunci: Indeks massa tubuh, metode impedansi, profil lipid serum, total lemak tubuh.
