AbstractBackground: Anemia is common disorder in India, although there are plenty of reasons attributable to anemia. There are studies reporting the beneficial effect of anemia on lipid profile. This research was conducted to study the pattern of lipid profile in anaemic patients.
Material & Method: Present hospital based cross sectional study was conducted among the patient more than 18yrs of age attending the OPD or admitted in medicine department Aarupadai Veedu Medical college & Hospital with diagnosed anemia. Study was done over a period of two years on patients with proven cases of anemia. After informed & written consent from the patients, detailed history, clinical assessment & laboratory investigation was done.
Result: In present study total of 280 patients fulfilling inclusion criteria are included in the study. The mean age of the patients was found to be 39.44±14.92yrs, among them 60% were female and 40% were male patient with female preponderance. There was significant positive strength of association of hemoglobin with the lipid profile which included the total cholesterol, LDL, HDL, triglycerides and VLDL cholesterol(p<0.05).
Conclusion: The present study showed a significant strength of association between the hemoglobin level and the lipid profile parameters. Also lower mean level of lipid parameters with severity of grade of anemia.
