Abstract: The objective was to assess the nutritional status and its association with dyslipidemia in adolescents 12 to 18 years in a rural school of Zapopan, Jalisco. Methods and materials. In a cross-sectional study 281 subjects were included. A food frequency intake survey was conducted and anthropometric measurements. Serum lipid profile was determined in overweight or obese subjects. Results. 48 cases (17.1%) were overweight (body mass index percentile 85 to > 97) and 64 (22.8%) were obese (body mass index percentile ≥ 97). The most common abnormality of the lipid profile was hypertriglyceridemia in 38%, followed by elevation of low density lipoprotein in 9% and low levels of high density lipoprotein in 6%. There were no differences in the lipid profile in subjects with overweight or obesity. Conclusions. The presence of dyslipidemia was not so common in this group of patients who are overweight or obese. Some reports in Mexico have shown a higher frequency of dyslipidemia, particularly changes in high density lipoprotein.
