Efthymia Katsa Maria , Ioannidis Anastasios , Zyga Sofia , Sachlas Athanasios , Tsironi Maria , Paola Rojas Gil Andrea

Background: Atherosclerosis begins in childhood and progresses silently. Triglycerides/HDL ratio(TG/HDL) is a risk factor for cardiovascular diseases.Objective and hypotheses: To investigate TG/HDL as possible predictive factor for metabolic disorders in children.Method: Descriptive correlation, with 110 children (6–12 years old) in Sparta, Greece. Anthropometric and biochemical analyzes were performed.R...
