Background: Obesity in children is gradually becoming a serious public health problem in many countries worldwide. Fatness levels in obese children are indicative of increased risk for elevated blood pressure and lipid profile. Together with dyslipidemia and hypertension, obesity is associated with higher risk of cardiovascular morbidity later in life. Objective: To assess the result of the lipid profile on the obese children based on the blood pressure value. Methods: The cross sectional research was carried out from November 2012 to January 2013 in Makassar on the students of Junior High School of 13-15 years who met the obesity criteria. The research samples were divided into two groups i.e. the increasing blood pressure group percentile (P) ≥90 and the normal blood pressure group (
