Abstract:   (5645 Views)
Introduction: Hyperlipidemia is a major cardiovascular risk factor. This survey has been performed to determine the prevalence of hyperlipidemia in the 17th zone of Tehran.
Methods: 1573 individuals 25-64 aged were recruited from the inhabitants of the 17th zone of Tehran through one stage cluster sampling. Standard questionnaires were filled out for all of the participants. Lipid profile was categorized according to the NCEP:ATP III criteria.
Results: 59% had ideal cholesterol levels, 27.1% borderline and 13.9% had high cholesterol levels. Hypercholesterolemia was more prevalent in women than men. 55% had ideal LDL-cholesterol level. Prevalence of hyper-LDL (>160mg/dl) was 2.3%. Hyper LDL was more prevalent in women than men (p<0.001). Prevalence of hypo-HDL was 13.8% and it was more common in men than women (p<0.001). 33.4% had high triglyceride levels.
Conclusion: Prevalence of dyslipidemia in this area of Tehran is not as high as that obtained from other urban studies. This fact should be considered in the future interventional programs which focus on noncommunicable disease management.
