Serum LDL levels and its variation during exercise in premenestrual syndrome

Author : P. Bala Chandra Naidu

To study the effect of exercise on serum LDL levels during the leuteal phase of menstrual cycle in MBBS First year medical students suffering from Pre- Menestrual Syndrome. We had included 60 female non-pregnant medical students with regular menstrual cycles for atleast 6 months prior to the study by considering the symptoms that occur premenestrually which are recurrent with menses. We divided the medical students into two groups as Control group (n=30) without exercise and Case group (n=30) with exercise for 6 months. The serum LDL levels were analyzed by using auto analyzer in both the groups. The data was analyzed by using Students t-test with the help of Graph pad software. There was a significant decrease in serum LDL levels in case group when compared to control group with p value < 0.0001. Regular exercise as a part of life style modification will relieve premenstrual symptoms by altering intravascular enzyme activity resulting in decrease of serum LDL levels.
