The majority of the patients were males i.e. 51.25% and females were 48.75% there was Correlation between TG (R2=0.232), LDL (R2=0.633), VLDL (R2=0.238) with respect to BMI (R2=0.009) and no co-relation with HDL (R2 =0.000). Conclusion: It can be concluded from our study that the lipid profile was deranged in children if BMI in children increases so, it indicates that child hood obesity may leads to future cardio vascular diseases.
