Background: Elevated serum bilirubin has been associated with reduced risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD). However, serum bilirubin is also related with several potential confounders related to CVD, such as obesity.
Methodology: This study includes 120 male Indian subjects between 30 to 50 years of age. Biochemical test like Lipid profile, bilirubin and blood sugar were measured on a fully automated analyzer along with quality control sera.
Results: Positive correlation is found between serum bilirubin and HDL cholesterol level while it was negatively correlated with Fasting blood sugar there were no statically significance present between serum total cholesterol and serum triglyceride in hospitalized patients, not in healthy subjects.
Conclusions: From my study it will be conclude that level of serum bilirubin is important parameter for defining risk of cardiovascular disease.
