Resumen

PETERMANN-ROCHA, Fanny et al. What is the prevalence of metabolically healthy obesity in Chile?. Rev. chil. nutr. [online]. 2019, vol.46, n.3, pp.264-270. ISSN 0717-7518.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-75182019000300264.

Obesity is an important cardiovascular risk factor. However, not all obese individuals have an unhealthy metabolic pro-file and vice versa. Therefore, the aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of different metabolic phenotypes by nutritional status in Chile. Methods: 1,733 individuals from the National Health Survey 2009-10 were included in this study. Nutritional status (obesity or normal-weight) was determined by BMI whereas metabolic profile was determined through four parameters: Glycaemia, blood pressure, HDL cholesterol and triglycerides. Four metabolic phenotypes were derived, among them: MUNO: metabolically unhealthy and non-obese and MHO: metabolically healthy obesity. Results: The prevalence of MHO in the Chilean population was 3.3% while the prevalence of MUNO was 17.4%. Moreover, the prevalence of MHO decreased as age increased and a greater proportion of metabolically healthy individuals were in the highest gross income group and in the technical-university educational level. Conclusion: This study shows a low prevalence of MHO and a higher prevalence of MUNO in the Chilean population. Future preventive actions should take into account not only the nutritional status, but also the metabolic profile of the population.
