Study of Lipid Profile in Accelerated Hypertension in Tertiary Care Hospital in Western Maharashtra
International Journal of Contemporary Medical Research [IJCMR]
CVD is the leading cause of disability and death worldwide, and a great majority of CVDs are associated with dyslipidemia. Worldwide, there is broad variation in serum lipid profile levels among different population groups. Increased serum levels of TC, TG, LDL, and decreased HDL are known to be associated with major risk factors for CVD. The present study was conducted to assess the lipid levels among cases of accelerated hypertension presenting to a tertiary healthcare institute. Material and
... methods: This study was done on 96 patients presented with hypertensive emergencies admitted under department of medicine, KIMS, Karad, from August 2018 to December 2018 On admission, detailed history was taken and complete clinical examination was done. It was a hospital based cross sectional study. Results: Serum levels of TC, TG, HDL and LDL were 182±3.4, 143.62±6.3, 49.68 and 95.83±7.8 mg/dL, respectively, in hypertensive subjects. Conclusions: Our results suggest that elevated BP may predict certain disturbances in lipoprotein metabolism.
