Hyperlipidemia in Heart attack and Angina patients
Cardiovascular diseases (CVD) have a number of risk factors, one of the most important of them is hyperlipidemia. The present study was aimed to assess blood levels of the lipid compounds in angina and post myocardial infarction patients. Seventy cardiovascular patients and thirty controls were included in the study. The patients were divided into diabetic & non diabetic and also grouped into angina and heart attack patients. The data showed that the level of blood sugar, triglyceride, & LDL cholesterol had increased in patients who were suffering from angina, and the patients who had suffered from heart attack, as compared to control subjects. The HDL- Cholesterol content was lower in patients as compared to control subjects and the HDL-C / LDL-C ratio is also very low in CVD patients as compared to normal control subjects. The lipid profile between angina and heart attack patients had shown no significant difference.
