Abstract
Objectives: - To study fasting blood glucose levels in relation with WHR & to compare central obesity in pre and post menopausal women for risk of development of type 2 D.M.

Correlation of Fasting blood glucose levels with WHR was found between pre & post menopausal women by using analysis of variance.
Result: In the entire subject population (n=100), a statistically significant difference of age & Fasting Blood Glucose was found between pre & post menopausal women. But there is no statistically significant difference of WHR was found between pre & post menopausal women.
