Abstract

Serum lipid and lipoprotein cholesterol levels track from childhood and are associated with risk of coronary heart disease. There is some evidence that these are influenced by dietary intake and exercise. Serum lipid and lipoprotein cholesterols were measured in a cohort of 119 British children aged 12-15 y who completed a dietary assessment and exercise questionnaire. The ratio of total- to high-density lipoprotein cholesterol fell with increasing fibre intake, but after adjustment for age, body mass index, sex and other dietary factors, this was not statistically significant. Children exercising at least once a day had significantly lower serum total cholesterol and low density lipoprotein cholesterol levels than those exercising less frequently, even after adjustment for the above factors and dietary fibre intake. No dietary factor was significantly associated with any lipid measure after adjustment for the above factors. The challenge is how to optimize exercise level in adolescent children.
