ABSTRACT

Background: In Kashmir, the prevalence of noncommunicable diseases(NCDs) has risen in recent years with dyslipidemia being one of the significant modifiable risk factor. The current study was aimed to analyze the lipid profile of the patients to rule out dyslipidemia. Methods: Out of 23367 recruited subjects, 4711 were stratified for lipid profile examination during March 2020 to November 2020. The Dyslipidemia was defined according to most commonly used definition as higher levels of cholesterol, TG, LDL and lower levels of HDL. Results: Dyslipidemia was found to be prevalent in <1% of the population. Hypercholesterolemia, hypertriglyceridemia and high LDL were found in 33.45% 36.93% and 33% of the study subjects respectively. However, the normal HDL levels were found in 88% subjects. On combinational analysis the participants with high cholesterol levels also had higher TG levels (55.92%). In case of TG and LDL, a similar pattern was observed, with 54.10 % of participants having increased TG and LDL levels. Subjects with high Chol and TG levels in combination with high LDL serum levels had the highest representation (92.66 %). Conclusion: Our findings show that various lipid parameters in our population are approaching threshold hold values.

Keywords: Dyslipidemia, Non-communicable disease, Kashmir.
