Introduction: Anthropometric indices and metabolic risk factors of cardiovascular disease due to inadequate physical activity have been identified as factors influencing health. Therefore, the aim of the present study was to compare the anthropometric indices and cardiovascular risk factors with standard norms in academic members.
Materials and Methods: The statistical sample of the study consisted of all (30 women and 128 men) faculty members of Azad university of Khomeinishahr. Anthropometric indices (Height, Wight, Waist Circumference, Hip Circumference, Waist to hip ratio, waist to stature ratio, Body mass index and Body fat%) and cardiovascular risk factors (Triglyceride, Total cholesterol, High density lipoprotein, and Low density lipoprotein) were determined and compared them with standard norms. Meanwhile, the level of physical activity was estimated by Baekce Physical Activity Questionnaire. For data analysis, statistical significances were assessed by t test and Pearson correlation.
Results: The results of this study showed that in all of the indices of anthropometric, the subjects were normal except in BF% (P > 0/05). Also, in cardiovascular risk factors, men in TG, Tcho, and LDL indices were normal levels, However they were at risk in the HDL, and FBS indices (P > 0/05). Indeed, in women, there was a significant relationship between the level of physical activity and waist circumference, hip circumference, WHR, WSR and BMI.
Conclusion: It seems that some anthropometric indices and cardiovascular risk factors are high in faculty members. Therefore, interventions in lifestyle, regular evaluations, and prevention program for modifying these factors need to be considered seriously.
