Abstract: Objective To study the differences in body composition and blood lipids between the pre-and post-menopausal women of Maonan ethnicity , and to explore the correlations between body fat content , fat distribution and blood lipids.Methods Totally 200 Maonan pre-and post-menopausal women were randomly selected from Huanjiang county in Guangxi.Body composition were measured by bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA), and blood lipids were tested from blood samples .Results Compared with the pre-menopausal women , the visceral fat level (/area ) , waist-hip ratio (WHR), left (/right) lower limbs fat, total cholesterol (TC), triglyceride (TG) and low-density lipoprotein( LDL-C) in post-menopausal women were significantly higher ( P <0.01 ) , and the detection rate of hypercholesterolemia , mixed hyperlipidemia and dyslipidemia in postmenopausal group was also significantly higher ( P<0.01 ) .All the blood lipids were closely related to WHR and visceral fat content (P<0.05 or P<0.01).In addition, TG, high-density lipoprotein ( HDL-C) and LDL-C except TC were significantly correlated to %BF, BMI and subcutaneous fat content ( P<0.05 or P<0.01).Conclusion The accumulation of visceral and abdominal fat in Maonan postmenopausal women is significantly correlated to dyslipidemia .The results may provide references for making preventive program for the Maonan women .
