Abstract :

Background: Cardiovascular diseases (CVD) are the major cause of morbidity and mortality in our society with dyslipidemia contributing significantly to atherosclerosis. Thus measurement of plasma lipids would help in identifying people at risk for CVD. The goal of this study was to ascertain the prevalence of Dyslipidemia among young adult population in urban India. Material and Methods : Around 1805 subjects with ≥ 40 age group were selected from a population. Health status was evaluated by physical check ups, complete fasting lipid profiles and blood glucose levels. Dyslipidemia risk and impaired blood sugar levels were determined as per National Cholesterol Education Program (NCEP) – Adult Treatment Panel (ATP) III guidelines and American Diabetes Association (ADA) respectively. Results: The prevalence of dyslipidemia was observed to be higher in males then in females. Among participants who had a total Cholesterol (TC) concentration ≥ 200mg/dl, 38.7% were males and 23.3% were females. High density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL–C) was abnormally low in 64.2% males and 33.8% in females. The increase of prevalence of hypercholesterolemia and hypertriglyceridemia was more prominent in 31–40 age group than in ≤ 30 age group. Conclusion: The low percentage of adults with controlled lipid concentrations suggests that there is a need for awareness programs for the prevention and control of Dyslipidemia and impaired blood sugar levels.
