Sažetak
Introduction Elevated plasma homocysteine (Hcy) as well as obesity, especially abdominal, increase the risk for developing cardiovascular diseases. Vegetarians usually have lower body weight and follow protective plant-based diet, but due to inadequate vitamin B12 intake can have increased Hcy. Aim To determine correlation between plasma Hcy and measures of body fatness: body mass index (BMI), waist to hip ratio (WHR) and percentage of body fat (% BF). Subjects and methods Vegetarian women (n=81, 7 vegans and 64 lacto-ovo-vegetarians), mean age 33 years (range 20-49 years) participated in the study. Abott AxSYM system was used for measuring plasma Hcy and % BF was measured with Omron BF 300. BMI and WHR were calculated from the measured parameters. Results Hcy level over 10 and 15 &#956; mol/L had 35.8 and 2.5 % subjects, respectively. Seven point four percent of subjects were underweight (BMI < 18.5 kg/m2) and 14.8 % were overweight (BMI > 25). Pearson&#8217; s correlation between plasma Hcy and anthropometric parameters was not significant and ANOVA showed no differences in plasma Hcy among quartiles for BMI, % BF and WHR. Conclusion In premenopausal vegetarian women plasma Hcy and measures of body fatness were not associated.
