Lipid plasma levels were measured in a group of 251 adipose juveniles. Triglycerides were elevated in relation to age but not to weight excess. Cholesterol and LDL levels had a same behaviour, through childhood toward adolescence, with significantly higher values in males than in females. VLDL levels prove a significative increase in reference to BML rise, but not so much increasing age. In short, the juvenile adiposity doesn't seem to produce considerable alterations of lipidaemia incides, even if we can foresee a possible evolution toward an acclaimed dislipidaemic pattern in adulthood.
