IQ is the score derived from a set of standardized tests of intelligence. 190 male fresh students, in the B Tech and the integrated MSc and other courses, who get admitted in Indian Institute of Technology at Kharagpur and other institutes are considered for the study to see the relationship of IQ with glucose assimilation,utilization and metabolism in respect to a glucose load and also the corresponding changes in serum insulin levels. The study also deals with relationship of IQ with some common bio-chemical parameters like lipid profile and serum bilirubin. It is being observed that with an increase in IQ level, the blood glucose absorption remains high with a rise in serum insulin level. Logically this will lead to more cerebral blood glucose availability. Correlation of IQ with different blood biochemical parameters shows a positive relationship with total cholesterol, high density lipoprotein cholesterol, low density lipoprotein cholesterol, very low density lipoprotein cholesterol and triglycerides and with serum bilirubin the correlation is found to be negative.
