The aim of this study is to examine the changes in the body composition of university students at the beginning and the end of the two-year period. Body weight, waist circumference, hip circumference, fat ratio, muscle ratio, waist-hip ratio and body mass index parameters of university students were measured at the beginning of the first year and at the end of the second year. In the analysis of all the parameters Will Coxon Test was used. Significance was determined at p>0.05 level. In the body weight, waist circumference and fat ratio parameters of the volunteers there was a statistically significant difference between the pretest-posttest values of female students (p<0.05); however, there was no difference in male students (p>0.05). On the other hand, there was a statistically significant difference in the pretest-posttest values of both sexes in muscle ratio, waist-hip ratio and BMI parameters (p<0.05). Both increases and decreases were observed between the parameters of the volunteers measured at the beginning and the end of the two-year period. It was determined that the body mass index values decreased and normalized in both girls and boys, waist-hip ratio was in the risk group in both girls and boys similarly, and the girls were in the risky group regarding the waist circumference values. The findings revealed that following these parameters, which are the significant indicators of well-being, and taking necessary precautions play a critical role in the case of a health problem which may emerge in the future.
Bu çalışmanın amacı, üniversite öğrencilerinin iki yıllık sürenin başlangıcında ve sonunda vücut kompozisyonlarında meydana gelen değişikliklerin incelenmesidir. Üniversite öğrencilerinin vücut ağırlığı, bel çevresi, kalça çevresi, yağ oranı, kas oranı, bel-kalça oranı ve vücut kitle indeksi parametreleri birinci yılın başında ve ikinci yılın sonunda ölçülmüştür. Tüm parametrelerin analizinde Will Coxon Testi kullanılmıştır. Anlamlılık p>0.05 düzeyinde belirlenmiştir. Gönüllülerin vücut ağırlığı, bel çevresi ve yağ oranı parametrelerinde kız öğrencilerin ön test-son test değerleri arasında istatistiksel olarak anlamlı fark tespit edilirken (p<0.05), erkek öğrencilerde fark yoktur (p>0.05). Kas oranı, bel-kalça oranı ve VKİ parametrelerinde ise her iki cinsiyetin ön test-son test değerlerinde istatistiksel olarak anlamlı farklılık tespit edilmiştir (p<0.05). Gönüllülerin iki yıllık sürenin başında ve sonunda ölçülen parametreleri arasında artmalar ya da azalmalar görülmüştür. Hem kızlarda hem erkeklerde vücut kitle indeksi değerlerinin azalarak normalleştiği, hem kızlarda hem de erkeklerde bel-kalça oranının risk grubunda olduğu ve kızların bel çevresi değerlerine göre riskli grupta oldukları saptanmıştır. Sağlık açısından önemli belirteçler olan bu parametrelerin ileriki yıllarda yaşanabilecek sağlık sorunları açısından takibinin ve gerekli tedbirlerin alınmasının önemi ortaya çıkmıştır.
