Coronary heart disease, LDL, HDL, Triglycerides


Background: The lipid profile and their ratio are important in management and follow up of patients with coronary heart disease. We studied the lipid profile and their ratios with proven coronary artery disease.

Methods: It was retrospective study to determine the lipid profile and their ratios in patients with proven coronary artery disease at Shakuntala Pathology Lab., Nagpur. 200 patients were studied.  

Results: Out of 200 patients studied, 126 (63%) were males while 74 (37%) were females. out of 126 males,12 (9.52%) had raised cholesterol values of >200 mg/dL. 20 (15.87%) had raised triglyceride values of >200 mg/dL. 30 (23.80%) had lower HDL values of <35 mg/dL. 5 (3.96%) had raised LDL values of >150 mg/dL. 90 (71.42%) had raised values of >3.5 for cholesterol to HDL ratio. Out of 74 female patients, 20 (27.02%) patients had raised cholesterol values. 12 (16.21%) patients had raised triglycerides values. 13 (17.56%) patients had lower HDL values. 6 (8.10%) patients had raised LDL values. 50 (67.56%) patients had raised values for cholesterol to HDL ratio.

Conclusions: Our study shows more prevalence of coronary heart disease in males than females. Hypercholesteremia and hypertriglyceridemia was more prevalent in females. HDL values were lowered in more number of males than females. LDL values were raised in more number of females than males. Total cholesterol to HDL ratio was raised in more number of males than females.
