The relationship between lipid profile levels in women with heart risk factor diseases


The research aims to study the level of fat in the blood of women and clarify the relationship between the different forms of fats in women with heart risk factors diseases. The study included collecting blood samples for 100 females with severe heart disease and 50 healthy females as a control group in Kut city of Iraq. The study presented a elevated concentration of cholesterol, triglycerides, low density-lipoprotein (LDL). and very-low-density-lipoprotein (VLDL) with decreased level of high-density-lipoprotein (HDL) in the group of women with severe cardiac disease compared to the control group. In addition, study found the highest mean concentration of lipid profile was in the group of patients with arteriosclerosis.
