Methods. We evaluated the underwater weighing, body compositions, plasma triglyceride (TG), serum total cholesterol, high density lipoprotein (HDL), low density lipoprotein (LDL) and cholesterol levels. In this study, the underwater weight and body density were highest in athlete group compared other groups.
Results and conclusion. The percent body fat was higher in obese children than other groups. Furthermore, plasma TG level was higher in obese children group than the other two groups. Serum TC, LDL-C concentration were higher in obese children group than the other two groups. Also, Serum HDL-C level was high in obese children group comparing other two groups.
