The present study was undertaken on randomly sampled older adults from both the sexes residing in Darbhanga, a commissionary town of North Bihar India (n=360). Body Mass Indices were determined using the standardized formula and plasma concentrations of Fasting glucose and Triglyceride were estimated using the semi-Automated Analyzer. Higher values of plasma constituents in relatively more vulnerable overweight and obese age groups of older adults were recorded with apparently more pronounced increasing trends in observed values among women subjects. ANOVA indicated highly significant variabilities at 0.01 level of P. Correlation analyses revealed, more or less, significant and positive correlations among the covariates in overweight and obese late age groups. Conclusively, age and obesity could be thought to serve as potential risks for diabetogenicity and dyslipidemia in older adults.

Key words : Age, Ageing, BMI, Dyslipidemia, Glucose, Obesity, Senescence, Triglyceride.
