Abstract

Background: Hypertension and dyslipidemia are associated with oxidative stress and are major causes of cardiovascular disease amounting to 30% of global death rate. Lipoproteins are fundamental to the atherosclerotic process and greatly affect the impact of hypertension on development of target organ damage and therefore on cardiovascular morbidity and mortality.
Objective: To assess serum lipid profile of hypertensive patients in Uttarakhand.
Material and Methods: Hospital based cross sectional study was conducted from June 2016 to November 2016 in Government Medical College and Base Hospital, Srinagar, Uttarakhand. Total 150 known hypertensive patients were enrolled from the catchment area of the hospital. Data was collected by interview, clinical examination and investigation. Statistical analysis was carried out on Microsoft excel 2016.
Results: Among 150 hypertensive patients (106 males and 44 females), maximum hypertensives 79 (52.7%) were in the age group of 50 to 70 years and 132 (88.0%) of them were in the 2nd stage of Hypertension. Serum levels of total cholesterol, triglyceride, HDL-C and LDL-C in hypertensive subjects were 190.50±32.84, 225.94±86.72, 40.10±4.23 and 43.05±9.50 mg/dl respectively.
Conclusions: Dyslipidemia is associated with hypertension and hypertensive patients need measurement of blood pressure and lipid profile at regular intervals to prevent cardiovascular diseases.
