Session: SAT 677-696-Obesity Physiology & Epidemiology
Poster Board SAT-681
Korea representative data, the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey 2010 data from the present study analyzed the prevalence and characteristics of the country of similar fat dystrophy. We made Z-score of fat mass index [body fat mass (kg) / (Height (m)2] with LMS method. We defined lypodystropy-like patients as not obese (BMI< 25kg/m2 and waist circumference < 90 cm (male), < 85 cm(female), and Z score for fat mass index below 0) and insulin resistance (with metabolic syndrome). Metabolic syndrome followed the NECP criteria.
The prevalence of metabolic syndrome whose BMI was below 25 kg/m2 was 11.4% (over the age of 20) and 38.4% (over the age of 65). And the prevalence of lypodystropy-like patients was 6.8% (over the age of 20) and 20.4% (over the age of 65). HOMA-IR of lypodystropy-like patients (2.17±1.37) was significant higher than people without metabolic syndrome (1.91±1.83, p<0.001) and was significant lower than with patients with metabolic syndrome and without lypodystropy feature (2.78±2.16).
In this study, a lot of patients showed the lypodystropy-like feature. They showed increased insulin resistance without the relationship with obesity.
