COMPARISON OF POST PRANDIAL LIPID PROFILE AT AN INTERVAL OF 2 HOURS AND 4 HOURS IN PATIENTS OF CORONARY HEART DISEASEAbstract
Coronary heart disease (CHD) is widely prevalent both in the developed and developing countries and continues to be a leading cause of mortality despite recent advances in diagnostic facilities and treatment modalities. Recently it has been proposed that postprandial lipoprotein may be a better indicators of deranged lipoproteins metabolism and hence of atherosclerosis and CHD. The levels of non-fasting triglycerides are better at predicting future cardiovascular events than levels of fasting triglycerides. Furthermore, it is possible that non-fasting levels of lipids, lipoprotein, differ only minimally from levels in the fasting state simply because, most of the people consume for less fat at ordinary meals than during a fat tolerance test. The aim of the current study is to determine the postprandial (at the intervals of 2 hours and 4 hours) lipid parameters TC, TGL, HDL, LDL and VLDL levels in Coronary heart disease patients and to compare it with fasting lipid profile. 200 subjects were selected with 100 controls and 100 CHD cases. Statistical analysis was done. The study was concluded that the lipid parameters TC, TGL, LDL and VLDL levels are decreased in 2 hours and 4 hours postprandial and the HDL levels gradually increased in 2 hours and 4 hours in CHD compared to controls group.
