Mubasshir A Sheikh, Samreena Jamal, Rukhshan Khurshid, Lubna Amer.

Objective: To observe the risk of dyslipidemia and variation in other biochemical parameters in old age subjects of both sexes and to observe the relationship of biochemical parameters with the dietary pattern.
Methods: Seventy males and 30 females, with age ranging from 40-60 years were included in the study. Levels of serum triglyceride, cholesterol, uric acid, blood sugar, blood urea and serum creatinine were estimated.
Results: The levels of serum triglyceride and uric acid were significantly increased in both sexes. Other biochemical parameters showed no significant difference. The dietary pattern and life style showed a direct relation with the level of triglyceride as compared to that of serum cholesterol.
Conclusions: Levels of triglycerides were found to be elevated in older patients. An education program is needed for the dietary modifications and morning walk that may lead to the lowering of serum triglyceride level. (Rawal Med J 2005;30:2-4)
