Abstract: Avaliou-se a associação entre medidas antropométricas de localização de gordura central: circunferências da cintura (CC) e abdominal (CA) e as razões cintura/quadril (RCQ) e cintura/estatura (RCE), independente do percentual de gordura corporal (%GC) e índice de massa corporal (IMC), com os componentes da síndrome metabólica (SM) em uma amostra probabilística de 610 (222 meninos e 388 meninas) adolescentes de 12 a 19 anos de escolas públicas de Niterói, RJ. Foram avaliados glicose e perfil lipídico pelo método… Show more

“…The same association was observed in a study on adolescents 24 . These findings emphasize that excess weight contributes to central obesity, with a consequent increase in the risk of metabolic syndrome and cardiovascular mortality.…”

“…When assessing the presence of MS components in accordance with the presence of insulin resistance, sex or age, it was observed that in the presence of IR, girls had a 2.9-fold higher risk than boys to have elevated TG and adolescents had 3 and 3.4-fold higher risk than children to have altered levels of TG and HDL-C. Insulin has several effects on lipid metabolism regulation, for instance, regulating the synthesis of triglycerides by adipocytes and participation IR enhances the oxidation of free fatty acids (FFA) in serum, provides substrate for the synthesis of TG in the liver and increases the hepatic release of TG-rich very low density lipoprotein (VLDL-c), to the serum, thereby increasing its levels 32 .…”

“…No entanto, o mesmo não é observado em indivíduos obesos, devido às frequentes alterações que ocorrem na atuação de determinadas enzimas e no metabolismo lipídico em função da RI 4 . Esta, por sua vez, intensifica a oxidação dos AG livres no soro, fornece substrato para a síntese de TG no fígado e aumenta a liberação hepática de very low density lipoprotein, rica em TG, para o soro 23 .…”

“…4 This, in turn, intensifies oxidation of free fatty acids in serum, provides substrate for TG synthesis in the liver and increases hepatic secretion of very low density lipoproteins, rich in TG, into the serum. 23 The tragic immediacy of the growing number of people affected by obesity/insulin resistance syndrome demands urgent public health measures directed at early identification and intervention during childhood. 8 The results reported here allow for the conclusion that hyperinsulinism is strongly associated with BMI.…”

“…Some authors suggested that blood pressure appears to be more dependent on total body fat rather than fat distribution in this age group. Adolescents and children with higher levels of blood pressure, even within normal limits, tend to progress over a lifetime showing higher incidence of hypertension in adulthood (23)(24)(25). A national study of 1716 volunteers aged 10-16 years has shown that obesity detected by BMI, adjusted for sex, age and skin color increased by 27% the chance of a teenager presenting with hypertension; WC, despite its association with blood pressure, lost its effect after adjustment for BMI (26).…”
