Association of High-sensitivity C-Reactive Protein Level with Central Obesity of the Children: A Case Study in a Tertiary Care Hospital of Bangladesh

September 8, 2021 Health Research 0

Obesity is a form of adiposity that has been exaggerated. Weight problems in children have become more prevalent than conventional adiposity, which is no longer measured robotically in medical practise. Adipose tissue contributes to the secretion of several inflammatory cytokines, which drive the liver’s production of high-touchy C-reactive protein (hs–CRP). The research was carried out to see if there was a link between high levels of hs–CRP and serious weight problems in Bangladeshi youngsters.

Methods: A total of 110 obese children aged 10 to 18 years with a BMI (ge) 95th centile were chosen, along with 55 age and sex matched non-obese children with a BMI (ge) 5th to 85th centile according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) growth chart. A structured questionnaire was created with demographic and clinical variables in mind. The hs-CRP levels in study participants were measured and subsequently linked with central obesity using the waist-to-height ratio (WHtR).

The prevalence of central obesity was 45.5 percent, and elevated hs-CRP levels were 46.4 percent in obese children, according to WHtR. Approximately 62 percent of obese children exhibited central obesity and an elevated hs-CRP level of (ge) 2 mg/L (high risk), which had a substantial positive connection with WHtR and was significantly higher in obese children.

Conclusions: Obese children with elevated hs-CRP levels had a high proportion of central obesity, suggesting that it could be used to predict future metabolic and cardiovascular complications.
