Estimation of Hemoglobin in Vegetarian and Non Vegetarian Obese Females in Varanasi
Abstract: The haemoglobin (Hb) levels of blood samples from vegetarians and non-vegetarians were determined for the purpose of assessing their nutritional status and making recommendation. Haemoglobin level and pattern of food intake is closely associated with risk of cardiovascular diseases. The cardiovascular diseases are primarily may be due to altered lipid profile which is depend on type and pattern of food intake. Venous blood samples were collected from all the cases to analyze haemoglobin levels along with healthy controls. The haemoglobin (gm %) in vegetarian obese female (case group) was 9.8 0.63 while in control group is 12.5 0.32 respectively. The haemoglobin (gm %) in non-vegetarian obese female (case group) was 12.50 0.33 while in control group is 13.64 0.39 respectively. Thus haemoglobin level of non-vegetarianism were high in obese female than vegetarian. Due to some nutrients intake, haemoglobin level was better in non-vegetarians than vegetarians.
