Lipid profile among asymptomatic individuals with history of DM/HTN


Dr. Mohammed Asif Ali, Dr. Prashanth ED

Introduction: Lipoproteins are globular particles with a hydrophobic oily core consisting of nonpolar lipids (triglycerol and cholestrol esters) coated with native surfactants (phospholipids and free cholesterol) and specific proteins called apolipoporteins. These apo-protein decide the physiological role of a lipoprotein like binding to specific enzyme or to cell membrane, thus directing the lipoprotein to its sites of metabolism Methodology: A detailed history and clinical examination was done in all patients. Blood samples were taken from all patients after a minimum of 12 hours of fasting, About 8ml of venous blood was drawn from the patients. 2ml of blood was collected in oxalate fluoride tube for blood glucose and 6ml was collected in dried glass tube for estimation of TC, TG, HDL. After clot retraction occurred the serum was separated and centrifuged at the rate of five thousand revolutions per minute for about five minutes Results: The levels of various lipids (mean± SD) in the overall study population were total cholesterol 163±24, Triglycerides 115±34, LDL cholesterol 88±23 and HDL cholesterol 51±5. Age group classification of these lipid values showed that there was a significant increase in triglycerides (F=7.841; P<0.0001) with increasing age, HDL cholesterol showed a significant decrease (F =2.801; P <0.026) with increasing age. Total cholesterol levels were higher in older (41-45 years) as compared to younger subjects. Conclusion: Though LDL cholesterol were higher in younger (20-25 years) age group a rising trend with age was noted.
