Strong Heart Study Analyses Obesity and Lipoproteins
Not Provided
To examine the relationship of obesity and body fat distribution to lipoprotein concentrations in members of the Strong Heart Study.

BACKGROUND:

The Strong Heart Study is a longitudinal cohort study of several American Indian groups in three participating centers. The overall aim of the main study is to determine the role of various risk factors in the development of cardiovascular disease in this native American population.

DESIGN NARRATIVE:

Data from the first and second clinical exams of the Strong Heart Study were analyzed to determine if body fat distribution as measured by waist-to-hip circumference was a better correlate of lipoproteins than was body mass index. In addition, change in body mass index (BMI) and waist-to-hip ratio (WHR) were correlated with change in lipoproteins.

The study completion date listed in this record was obtained from the "End Date" entered in the Protocol Registration and Results System (PRS) record.
