Abstract :

Background: Obesity, both directly and indirectly, increases the risk for variety of disease conditions including diabetes, hypertension, liver disease and certain cancers, which in turn decrease the overall lifespan in both men and women. Proteinuria was identified as a significant predictor of end-stage renal disease (ESRD) in a mass screening of volunteers and reported as a risk factor for cardiovascular or total mortality. Though the cardiovascular risks of obesity are widely acknowledged, less often identified is the relationship between obesity and renal function. Aim: The aim of this work was to study the relationship between abdominal obesity and microalbuminuria (MA) in elderly subjects. Methods: A cross sectional study was conducted on 200 elderly subjects, aged ≥60 years. Subjects were recruited from both Geriatrics and Gerontology Department and Internal Medicine at Ain Shams University Hospital, Egypt. All patients had done anthropometric measurements including weight, height, body mass index, waist circumference, hip circumference, waist hip ratio and also assessment of blood pressure and albumin/creatinine ratio in urine. Results: Mean age of participants was 74.96±5.603 years. Mean waist circumference in whole sample was measured 96.78±16.85, mean hip circumference was 106.31±19.24, mean waist hip ratio was measured 0.91±0.09 and mean body mass index was 27.83±9.8. All of waist circumference, waist hip ratio, systolic blood pressure, hypertension, diabetes mellitus, ischemic heart disease, and renal disease were significantly related to microalbuminuria (MA). Also, fasting blood sugar, serum triglycerides and renal functions were related to MA, meanwhile on multivariate analysis of abdominal obesity as measured by waist hip ratio was the strongest variable correlated with MA in elderly subjects in the whole sample. Conclusion: Abdominal obesity is strongly associated with microalbuminuria in Egyptian elderly
