ASSESSMENT OF CORRELATION IN GENDER AND AGE WITH LIPOPROTEIN LEVELS IN HYPERLIPIDEMIA PATIENTS
Objective: The main objective of the study was to monitor and compare the correlation between the age and gender with the serum lipoprotein levels
in the hyperlipidemia patients.
Methods: The entire study was performed only after getting approval from the Institutional Ethics Committee. This is a prospective observational
study and conducted in Department of Cardiology of a tertiary care teaching hospital. A total of 520 patients were included and the data collected by
data entry form, and the results were thoroughly analyzed using various statistical tools for its relevance and significance.
Results: From the total study population (n=520), the majority was males 271 (52.1%) than the female population 249 (47.9%). The minimum age
in the study population identified was 40 (years) and the maximum age was 89 (years). The average age of the study population was found to be
60.94Â±13.062 (years). The mean averages of total cholesterol in males 217.48Â±39.33 mg/dL compared to females 231.05Â±55.05 mg/dL, triglycerides
in males were 209.01Â±73.08 mg/dL compared to females 235.71Â±97.16 mg/dL, low-density lipoproteins in males were 156.42Â±37.02 mg/dL
compared to females 164.19Â±43.17 mg/dL, and in case of high-density lipoproteins it was 32.61Â±6.34 mg/dL compared to females 31.48Â±6.53 mg/dL.
Conclusion: From the entire study, it was concluded that the prevalence rate is a more common in male population. The incidence rate is too high in
younger age population. The correlation of age and gender is directly proportional to the incidence of hyperlipidemia.
