Introduction: Waist circumference (WC) in children or teenage have a close relation with the prediction to cardiovascular disease and diabetes mellitus type 2. The person that have a high risk is the children with WC percentile <90 which direct us to a study about the relation of waist circumference and lipid profile in children as an early intervention of prevention of cardiovascular disease in children. Methods: We have done a cross sectional study about the relationship of the waist circumference and lipid profile in children. The study samples are the junior high schools of Nusantara’s, Frater’s, and Islamic Athirah’s that met the criteria. The study was done from July 2012 until January 2013. Results: The study samples that met the study criteria are 86 children with 43 of them are with WC percentile >90 and the rest of 43 with percentile <90. By a multivariate analyses, we obtained 3 variables of lipid profile that have a relation to the WC percentile >90, which a cholesterol level total AOR is 12.621 (95% CI 3.72-94.40), triglyceride is AOR 6.945 (95% CI 1.80-54.67) and the ratio of LDL and HDL cholesterol with AOR 4.025 (95% CI 1.03-17.48). Conclusion: According to the study result, we conclude that the cholesterol frequency occurrence is high; the triglyceride is also high, and the ratio of high LDL and HDL cholesterol are more greats in WC children with percentile >90 rather than the percentile <90.
