Abstract

Objective To investigate prevalence of overweight and obesity among residents aged≥60 years in rong-gui community.

Methods 1372 ones (570 males, 802 females, 68.03±6.62 years) of total 1503 residents aged≥60 years in the 2 villages which were randomly exampled in rong-gui community were investigated. Investigative items included age, sex, body height, body weight, waist circumference (WC), hip circumference (HC), fasting plasma glucose (FG), total cholesterol (TC) and triglyceride (TG).

Results Of total 1372 residents, the combined prevalence of overweight and obesity was 39.4%. Prevalence of overweight, obesity were 29.4%, 10.0% respectively. Prevalence of male were 30.8%, 6.0%, and female, 28.5%, 12.8% respectively. Prevalence of residents aged 60–69 years were 31.2%, 11.3%, 70–79 years were 27.0%, 9.1% and ≥80 years were 25.2%, 2.0% respectively. The difference between male and female, among three age groups were not significant. 2) of total 1372 residents, prevalence of central adiposity were 34.6%, male was 15.9% and female was 52.4%, female significantly higher than male (p<0.01). 3) The FG, TG, SBP, DBP of residents with overweight, obesity or central adiposity were higher than residents with normal weight or WC (p<0.01). 4) By Pearson correlation analysis, we found that overweight, obesity and central adiposity were obviously correlated with FG, TG, SBP, DBP (p<0.01), were not correlated with TC.

Conclusion (1) Of total 1372 residents, the combined prevalence of overweight and obesity was 39.4%. Prevalence of central adiposity were 34.6%, female was 52.4%, female significantly higher than male. (2) Overweight, obesity and central adiposity were obviously correlated with FG, TG, SBP, DBP.
