Abstract´╝Ü Objective To investigate the correlation of anthropometric parameters with alanine aminotransferase (ALT) in Qinhuangdao college students.Methods A total of 789 subjects from two colleges in Qinhuangdao City (369 men and 420 women) were recruited using a cluster-stratified sampling method.Anthropometric measurements included height,body weight,waist circumference,hip circumference,blood pressure.and ALT.Body mass index,waist to height ratio,and waist to hip ratio were calculated.Results Elevated ALT was found in 16.3% of male participants and 4.0% of females(P<0.05).For males,those with elevated ALT showed significantly higher levels of anthropometric parameters (P<0.05).In females,the levels of anthropometric parameters were similar between subjects with or without elevated ALT(P>0.05).Receiver operating characteristie curve analysis also showed that obesity indices predicted elevated ALT only in men [area under the curve:0.8-0.9(P<0.05) in men,0.5-0.6(P>0.05) in wonlen].Blood pressure did not predict elevated ALT in both men and women (area under the curve:0.5-0.7).Conclusion Dender difference of obesity indices could be found in Qinhuangdao college students.Obesity indices may be independent predictors of elevated ALT in men.However,blood pressure seems not to be an independent predictor of elevated ALT.
