Abstract: To evaluate effects of improvement of obesity on glucose and lipid metabolism, changes of body weight, skinfolds and biochemical parameters in glucose and lipid metabolism were examined through a six month health education on excercise and diet. Subjects were 20 men and 36 women aged from 48 to 87, who had overweight and/or glucose intolerance. Weight, relative weight and fat mass were significantly reduced after the program in both sexes. Circumference ratios were reduced only in women. The significant reduction of skinfold was found at the suprailiac in men, and at regions of upper body in women. The reduction of weight was associated with those of skinfolds in either sex. Fasting serum glucose in both sexes and serum insulin in men significantly decreased after the program. Statistical analyses revealed that improvements of glucose metabolism in men were contributed by decreases of skinfolds at abdominal and suprailiac regions. The increase of HDL was related to the decreases of fat mass in men and of abdominal-hip ratio in women. These findings indicate that excercise and/or dietary control are effective on the improvements of metabolic aberrations, and that measurements of regional skinfolds are important for estimating changing risks with the reduction of weight.
