Background:Obesity is a condition of chronic accumulation of body fat and a factor for the onset of serious diseases such as dyslipidemia. Obesity and dyslipidemia are emerging as significant public health challenges in South Asian countries

Aim:This study aimed to assess the association of obesity with dyslipidemia by measuring LDL and HDL in adolescents

Method:This study is an observational analytic study with a cross-sectional design. Sixty-two adolescents aged 17 – 19 years were randomly using systematic random sampling. LDL and HDL, anthropometric (weight, height, and BMI). Analysis data was performed using an independent t-test, chi-square test, and Fisher test

Results:The results showed that the samples with a high risk for the measurement of LDL and HDL.

Conclusions:It was concluded that obese adolescents have close links with dyslipidemia and have low HDL level. Obesity in adolescents is essential as early as possible so that it does become a significant health problem.
