Obesity is described as an asymmetrical body weight for height with an extreme growth of adipose tissue that is usually with the highest risk of disordered lipid profile. Obesity is caused by a sequence of excessive food intake, absence of physical motion, and hereditary predisposition. A few instances are caused primarily by genes, endocrine dysfunctions, medicines, or mental confusion. BMI gives a simple numeric test of obesity. BMIs below 20.0kg/m2 and above 25.0kg/m2 has been connected with significant various health problems and most of mortality incidence causes. The recent investigations indicate a relationship between obesity, acetylcholinesterase (AChE) activities, and short-term weight loss in obese. A total of 39 female students, 18-35 years old, involved in this investigation to evaluate the relationship between body mass index (BMI), blood lipid, and AChE in female’s university students. The present study reveals a strong correlation between BMI and lipid profile. As well, there is a weak negative relation between AChE and BMI in current work. But, All results of AChE in the present results within the reference range. Further long-term studies with a higher number and different types of sexes will be needed to validate and complete evaluate the specific relation between obesity and AChE.
