Abstract

Obesity is a major public health problem in developing countries. Obesity a state of excess adipose tissue mass is associated with number of cardiovascular disease and metabolic disturbances. Irrespective of etiology, Obesity is associated with autonomic dysfunction and contributes to obesity related comorbidities such ad insulin resistance, hypertension, dyslipidemia and cardiovascular dysfunction The study demonstrates HRV indices indicating sympathetic activity were increased where those indicating parasympathetic activity were decreased. E/I ratio and valsalva ratio indicating the parasympathetic function were also reduced. The results suggestive of reduced parasympathetic activity associated with elevated sympathetic activity in obese males at rest.This sympathovagal imbalance makes them susceptible for development of cardiovascular disorders.
