care, as well as side-effects of anti-psychotic medication Individuals with schizophrenia are more likely to have obese parents , but obesity is not more common in schizophrenia[21–24]; at least one study has shown that elderly patientsweigh less than healthy controls . However, there are dif-ferences in body composition between patients with schizo-phrenia and healthy controls. When assessed by CT scanningand anthropometry, drug-naïve and drug-free schizophrenicpatients were found to have significantly higher waist to hipratios, and over three times as much visceral fat .
The lipid profile in first-episode, drug-naïve patients withschizophrenia was found to be more favourable than in healthycontrols , but in contrast high density lipoprotein (HDL)cholesterol levels are decreased and triglycerides are increasedin chronic schizophrenic patients treated with phenothiazines.
