Epidemiological studies suggest several genes from the vitamin D receptor have been implicated in obesity and cardiovascular disease. However, the findings were inconsistent. The aim of this study was to evaluate TaqI polymorphism of the vitamin D receptor (VDR) gene are associated with anthropometric parameters and blood pressure on college students in Faculty of Medicine, Sumatera Utara University.This was a cross-sectional study. Measurements of anthropometric parameters were carried out. Blood pressure measurement using a mercury sphygmomanometer. TaqI polymorphiss of VDR gene were geno- typed by PCR and FRLP. Statistical analysis were calculated using SPPS software (version 14.0).The prevalence of TaqI genotypes were 117 (84%) TT and 22 (16%) Tt. Homozygous tt was not found in the subjects. There were no significant differences in anthropometric parameters (BMI and WHR) and blood pressure between TaqI polymorphism of the VDR gene (p=0.321; p=0.607; p=0.278) The results suggest that TaqI VDR polymorphism are not related with the obesity and not risk factor of cardiovascular disease on college students in Faculty of Medicine, University of Sumatera Utara
