- BMI, triglyceride levels
Body mass index (BMI) is an approximate measure of your total body fat. Being underweight or overweight can cause health problems, especially if you are also inactive. These problems include heart disease and cardiovascular problems, diabetes, digestive problems, breathing problems and other problems. This research aims to know the relationship of BMI and triglyceride level in the blood on the students of Faculty of Medicine, University of North Sumatra (FK USU) in 2016. This research type is analytic with cross-sectional design, using a consecutive sampling technique of 139 people. Data collection techniques were carried out by using various variables, first, the measurement of weight and height to get the BMI data and blood samples were taken for levels of triglycerides in the blood data. Data was analysed using Pearson correlation test. The result showed that BMI correlates with levels of triglycerides by 0.33. The value of r of BMI relationship with triglyceride level is 0.0001. The significance value of <0.05 is seen thus there is a correlation between the two real variables. As much as 10.89% difference in triglyceride levels can be explained by BMI
