Abstract
Introduction: Obesity a major risk factor for many acute and chronic disorders/ including cardiovascular and cerebrovascular disease and diabetes.
Method: A total of 40 non obese and 40 obese medical students in age group of 18-22 years who have satisfied inclusion and exclusion criteria and have consented to participate in study were enrolled. Each enrolled subjects BMI was recorded and evaluation of autonomic function was done using Hand grip dynamometry and orthostatic tolerance test (OTT).
Result: There was significant difference in autonomic parameters values between obese and non obese students, indicative of deranged autonomic and cardiac functions in obese. This indicates implementation of early interventional programs (weight reduction, life style changes and physical exercise) to prevent obesity related cardiovascular sequelae in future.
