Abstract:
With changing lifestyle and urbanization, the prevalence of cardio metabolic risk factors are increasing across all ages. Scanty information is available regarding the prevalence of various cardiometabolic risk factors among the youth population of the North East students migrating for Higher Education. A cross sectional study design was used to assess the cardio metabolic risk factors among 168 college students. The overall prevalence of overweight and obesity were 16.67% and 18.45% respectively. The prevalence of dyslipidemia was also found in varied percentages among the subjects. Low levels of HDL cholesterol was found among 29.17% of the subjects, followed by 16.07% of subjects having high TG level and 44.64% subjects having high LDL cholesterol level. As the prevalence of cardio metabolic risk factors were found higher among the subjects, interventions should be focused primarily on intensive lifestyle management to avert the development of diabetes and CVD during the productive years of life.
