Dr. Meenakshi Sharma and Dr. Sushil Kumar Sharma
To assess the impact of BMI on liver enzymes in perimenopausal women.
Methods: The present study was conducted on 100 perimenopausal women. Subjects were divided into 3 subgroups normal, overweight and obese on the basis of BMI. Bodyweight and height was taken and BMI was calculated using Quetelet index. Blood samples were taken in the early morning. Data obtained was compiled and statistical analysis was done.All parameters were reported as mean and standard deviation. The statistical differences in mean values were tested using Levene’s test for equality of variances followed by t-test for equality of means. ANOVA was used to do comparison with in the subgroups. Pearson correlation was used to calculate the correlation between various variables.
Conclusion: Positive correlation was seen between liver enzymes AST (aspartate aminotransferase) and BMI (body mass index) in normal, overweight and obese perimenopausal females.
