Being female (p<0.0001), low education level (OR = 2.45 95% CI: 1.78-4.55, p = 0.001) and lack of physical activity (OR = 3.57 95% CI = 2.34-9.67, p = <0.001) were the main factors significantly associated with obesity. BMI was positively correlated to age (r = 0.145, p = 0.0004), diastolic blood pressure (r = 0.10, p = 0.013) and waist circumference was positively correlated to age (r = 0.381, p<0.0001), systolic blood pressure (r = 0.289, p = 0.0001) and diastolic blood pressure (r = 0.194, p<0.0001), but there was no correlation between anthropometric data and total serum cholesterol and fasting glucose. The prevalence of obesity was high in the worker’s population of Lomé especially in female and is associated with low education level and lack of physical activity.]]> http://scialert.net/abstract/?doi=rjc.2013.19.27 23 April, 2014
