Ophthalmol Update Jan ;15(3):265-7.

Objective: To observe the association of low HDLc and Myocardial infarction. Design: Cross sectional study. Patients and methods: Patients from KPK coming for coronary angiography were analyzed for Lipid profiles and compared with normal control. Relationship of obesity and Dyslipidemia was also evaluated. Results : Most of Patients with MI showed low abnormal HDLc (High density lipoprotein related cholesterol) levels n=79 (79%),while few of normal control individuals showed low HDLc level no=39 (39%).Odd ratio of MI to normal control for HDLc (5.88 )is very significant. Most of obese individual with or without MI showed low HDLc levels n=35 (82.4%). The ratio TG/HDLc was greater than 4 in MI patients, a high risk factor. Conclusion: MI can be avoided by controlling HDLc. There is significant association of low HDLc with obesity and DM.
