Abstract:
The objective of the study was to find out the Relationship of waist hip ratio with selected hematological parameters of middle aged males of Punjab. The study was conducted on middle aged males (aged 40 to 45 years) of Punjab. A total fifty (N=60) middle aged males of Punjab was selected as subject. All the subjects were selected from different region of Punjab having no medical history. These Subjects were selected in terms of cluster sample from the all the region of Punjab. The necessary data on selected hematological parameters (Hemoglobin, Red Blood Cell Count (RBC) and Hematocrit) were collected by administration of laboratory tests for selected hematological parameters. The tests were administered after giving them instruction and taking consent from the subjects. Hematological parameter test Were taken place after 8 to 10 hours of fasting. The data pertaining to each of the selected hematological parameters (Hemoglobin, Red Blood Cell Count (RBC) and Hematocrit) were examined by Person’s Product Moment Correlation in order to observe the significant relationship, if any. The level of significance to test the hypothesis was 0.05. P<0.05. The analysis of the data revealed that there was insignificant negative relationship existed between Hemoglobin and Waist Hip Ratio. As coefficient of correlation in case of waist hip ratio and Hemoglobin was -0.05 which was less than the required value (0.25). p value (0.70) was more than significant value (0.05). In case of Red Blood Cell Count (RBC), there was insignificant relationship existed between Red Blood Cell Count (RBC) and Waist Hip Ratio. As coefficient of correlation in case of waist hip ratio and Red Blood Cell Count (RBC) was 0.23 which was less than the required value (0.25). p value (0.07) was more than significant value (0.05). It is also evident that there was insignificant relationship existed between Hematocrit and Waist Hip Ratio. As coefficient of correlation in case of waist hip ratio and Hematocrit was 0.03 which was less than the required value (0.25). p value (0.0001) was less then significant value (0.05). In other case it is evident that there was significant Positive relationship existed between LDL and Waist Hip Ratio. As coefficient of correlation in case of waist hip ratio and LDL was 0.99* which was more than the required value (0.25). p value (0.82) was more than significant value (0.05). On the basis of finding of the study it was concluded that there was insignificant relationship of waist hip ratio with Hemoglobin, Red Blood Cell Count (RBC) and Hematocrit of middle aged males of Punjab. It shows low association between waist hip ratio and Hemoglobin, Red Blood Cell Count (RBC) and Hematocrit.
