Beside hormonal factors, high intake of fat and waist to hip ratio (WHR) are predicted as risk factors to the increasing of LDL levels in menopause women. The aim of the present study was to assess the association of fat intake and WHR with LDL levels in menopause women. A cross sectional study was conducted in a simple random sample of 33 menopause women aged 45-65 years old in Posyandu Ngudi Waluyo Surakarta. An average of three 24-hour dietary recalls of each woman was analyzed using Nutrisurvey to obtain fat intake. WHR and LDL concentration on each respondent were undertaken. The results of the research showed that 17 participants (51.5%) had high intake of fat, 26 participants (78.8%) with WHR more than 0.85 cm and 15 (45%) had LDL concentration above 150 mg/dL. There was no relationship between fat intake and LDL concentration (p=0.139) as well as WHR and LDL levels (p=0.67). This research concluded that both fat intake and WHR appeared not to be the risk factor to the increasing of LDL level in menopause women at the Posyandu Ngudi Waluyo Surakarta.
