Author(s):

Abstract:
Aim: To study the correlation between haematological profile and body mass index in adults.
Methods: This cross-sectional study was carried out in the Department of Physiology……………………….India, for the period of 1 year, after taking the approval of the protocol review committee and institutional ethics committee. 200 participants, 100 males and 100 females in the age group 18 to 32 years were included in this study. Under aseptic precaution 10 ml blood sample taken from antecubital vein and then transfererd to EDTA tube. Then full haematological profile was taken using sysmex haematology anlyser.
Results: In our study, PCV is statistically increased in overweight and obese individuals as compared to other BMI groups in both males and females. Total leucocyte count was significantly higher in overweight and obese subjects when compared to normal subjects. We found no change in Haemoglobin concentration and RBC count in all BMI groups.
Conclusion: There is direct positive correlation between BMI and total leucocyte count. RBC count and haemoglobin concentration shows no statistical significance among all BMI groups.
