Associação entre Ingestão Dietética de Magnésio e Parâmetros do Perfil Lipidico em Mulheres Obesas
Research, Society and Development
Obesity is associated with the development of other chronic diseases, such as dyslipidemia, characterized by increased plasma concentrations of triglycerides, total cholesterol (TC) and LDL-c and reduction of HDL-c. In order to identify mechanisms involved in these disorders, magnesium has been studied for regulating important enzymes in lipid metabolism. Objective: To evaluate the relationship between dietary magnesium content and lipid profile in obese women. Methodology: Cross-sectional and
... ross-sectional and analytical study with women divided into two groups: case (obese, n = 25) and control (eutrophic, n = 42). Magnesium intake was analyzed by a three-day food record using the Nutwin program. Serum lipid concentrations were determined according to the colorimetric enzymatic method in an automatic biochemical analyzer. Results: Macronutrient intake values were within the recommended ranges in both groups. Magnesium intake was below the recommendations, with no statistical difference between the studied groups (p> 0.05). Serum TC and LDL-c concentrations were higher and HDL-c lower in obese women compared to eutrophic women (p <0.05). There was a significant negative correlation between dietary magnesium and LDL-c concentrations in the control group (p <0.05). However, there was no correlation between micronutrient intake and lipid profile parameters in the case group. Conclusion: The results do not suggest the participation of magnesium in the protection against changes in lipid profile in obese women.
