[Research Presentation] Introduction: Obesity has reached the proportions of a pandemia. About 1,700 million people worldwide have overweight- or obesity-related problems. The increase in the prevalence of overweight and obesity obeys diverse causes and is related to dyslipidemia and cardiovascular disease. Purpose and Methodology: To determine the prevalence of overweight, obesity and dyslipidemia in a university population in Saltillo, Coahuila. Transversal descriptive epidemiologic design, stratified random sampling with proportional assignation, sample was constituted by 292áindividuals. By means of direct interviews data was obtained. These included variables such as sociodemographic, personal and family medical history concerning cardiovascular disease. Blood samples were taken on a fast for the determination of total cholesterol, low density lipoproteins (LDL) and high density lipoproteins (HDL), weight and size for the calculation of the Body Mass Index (BMI). Results and Conclusions: The prevalence of 31.2% of overweight and 15.1% of obesity according to the World Health Organization (WHO) and according to the Mexican Obesity Norm (MON), prevalence was 31.8% for obesity and 14.4% for overweight. Being the prevalence higher amongst males. The global prevalence of hipercolesterolemia was 23.7% and by gender 31.4% among males and 18.4% among females; per category the highest prevalence was found amongst manual labourers (53.9%). The mean value for total cholesterol was 173.33mg/dl. An estimation of probability degrees was obtained with respect to hipercolesterolemia in the obese population RM= 2.55, (IC951.460 - 4.464; p &pound .05). A higher prevalence amongst males was observed as well as a higher alteration of total cholesterol HDL, antecedents for cardiovascular disease amongst personal- and family-related ones were lower than those reported in other studies. The association of obesity and the alteration in total cholesterol and HDL suggests higher risks for cardiovascular disease.
