HDL cholesterol is considered to be a protective factor. Any effort for management of dyslipidemia directly reduces cardiovascular mortality and morbidity and cause increasing public health .The ignorance of the extent and impact of hyperlipidemia prompted us to determine the prevalence of hyperlipidemia in Rafsanjan urban population over than 20 years old.
Methods: In this study 247 men and 244 women were evaluated for serum total cholesterol , LDL cholesterol , HDLcholesterol and triglyceride levels.Blood samples were obtained at morning, after 14 hours fasting and for data analysis SPSS-11 soft ware was used. Results: Mean age of subjects was 38.35±13.14 years.High cholesterol level was present in 20.6%, LDL levels were high in 10.8% , 5.7% had elevated level of triglyceride and 8.4% of participants had low HDL cholesterol. Total cholesterol , LDL cholesterol and triglyceride levels were significantly increased by age and HDL levels were also decreased by age.
