Abstract
To study the association between body composition and serum glucose, lipids, leptin, and insulin in a group of health-check population. Total of 205 subjects under routine health check were investigated. After overnight fasting, they were checked for body composition, serum glucose, lipids (triglyceride, total cholesterol, high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C)), leptin, and insulin. Because of the seriously skewed distribution of leptin and insulin data, their natural logarithm, named as Lnlep and Lnins were chosen in data analysis. result: Male subjects at all age groups showed higher body weight, height, waist circumstance, BMI, percentages of muscle mass, water and mineral components, LDL-C, and overweight rate then that in female (all P<0.05); With the increase of age, both genders showed decreased height, percentages of muscle mass, water and protein components (P<0.05 for both), but increased fasting blood glucose (FBG) and overweight rate ( P<0.05 for both). As for females, their mean weight, total fat mass, and percentage of fat mass were increased along age increase (all P<0.05); The impact factors of BMI in these population were waist circumstance, percentage of fat mass, Lnins, and gender. Their standardized partial regression coefficients were 0.650, 0.358, 0.082, and 0.103 respectively (all P<0.05). Conclusion: ody weight, waist circumstance, BMI, serum LDL-C, and are positively associated with age; Waist circumstance, percentage of body fat, and serum insulin were positively associated with BMI.
