Abstract:

Background and Aims: The study was conducted to determine the lipid profiles in patients with chronic liver disease and to determine if it correlates with the severity of the chronic liver disease. Materials and Methods: In an analytical cross-sectional study,120 patients with chronic liver disease (case) and 50 age- and sex-matched Healthy patients (controls) were studied. Serum triglyceride level, total cholesterol,HDL LDL,VLDL were then measured. Child-Turcotte-Pugh Score were calculated for each patient as an index for the extent of liver damage. Results: In patients with chronic liver diseases,with the exception of triglyceride level, there was a significant decrease in total cholesterol, LDL,VLDL and HDL cholesterol levels compared to the control group( p<0.05). However, no significant correlation was found between severity of cirrhosis and change in serum lipid levels. [Natl J of Med Res 2013; 3(1.000): 70-72]
