LIANG, Wei et al. Blood lipid profile and glucose of university students (China). Nutr. Hosp. [online]. 2015, vol.31, n.5, pp.2182-2186. ISSN 1699-5198.

Objective: The main objective of this study was to estimate the blood glucose and blood lipid profile of students in a university in China. Methods: This descriptive study was based on the health screening data for university students in 2013. The blood glucose (GLU), lipid profiles (total cholesterol (TC), triglyceride (TG, and high density lipoprotein (HDL-C)) was measured by using Hitachi model 747 automatic analyzer. The LDL cholesterol values were calculated according to the formula: LDL-C = TC-HDLC- TG/5. Results: The mean of HDL was 51.31 and 56.30 mg/dL for male and female, respectively (p<0.05). The majority of students have normal level of GLU (65-110mgl/dL). Elevated TC and LDL were observed in 6.92% and 5.82 % of male, similarly, 5.91%and 3.57% of female. High levels of TC, LDL and TG in male university students were1.02%,0.71% and 1.41%, respectively; in female university students were1.26%,1.04 and 0.68%, respectively. Reduced levels of HDL were observed in5.59% of male and 2.62% of female. Conclusion: The study shows that the prevalence of blood glucose and blood lipid in university students, especially reduced levels of HDL and elevated TC and LDL in university students has become a critical health issue. Relevant department of school and government should pay more attention to students' physical health.
