Lipid profiles in the Isfahan population: an Isfahan cardiovascular disease risk factor survey, 1994
AbstractA population-based study was conducted in 1994 in Isfahan to define the prevalence of various types of hyperlipidaemia and the mean concentrations of serum total cholesterol, triglycerides, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol and high-density lipoprotein [HDL] cholesterol. In all, 2200 people were randomly chosen and classified into five age groups [20-70 years]. The data were obtained by questionnaires and anthropometric measurements and serum lipids and fasting blood sugar were measured. The prevalence of hyperlipidaemia was higher in women than men. Multiple linear regression showed only HDL cholesterol and triglycerides to be associated with body mass index. The most prevalent lipid abnormality was HDL cholesterol. Diet modification and physical activity should be encouraged to reduce hyperlipidaemia

Association of rotating night shift with lipid profile among nurses in an Egyptian tertiary university hospital Gadallah, Mohsen; Hakim, Sally A.; Mohsen, Amira; Eldin, Waleed S. (2017-04)The main objective was to identify whether night shift nurses are more prone to dyslipidaemia than day shift nurses. One hundred and fifty female nurses aged 20-49 years were recruited from Ain Shams University Hospitals, Egypt, from January to March 2016: 64 day shift and 86 night shift. Diet type was assessed by interview questionnaire and job satisfaction was assessed using the job satisfaction survey. Triglyceride [TG], low-density lipoprotein [LDL] and high-density lipoprotein [HDL] were measured in all nurses. The predictors of high TG level ...
Effect of Ramadan fasting on glucose level, lipid profile, HbA1c and uric acid among medical students in Karachi, Pakistan Khan, Nazeer; Rasheed, Abdur; Ahmed, Hassaan; Aslam, Faiza; Kanwal, Fatima (2017-04)To assess the effect of Ramadan fasting on blood pressure, fasting glucose, lipid profile, uric acid, HbA1c, body mass index, body adiposity index and visceral adiposity index among fasting medical students, 35 students were recorded before, during and after Ramadan [August] 2011, for their blood pressure, anthropometric measurements, questionnaire response and blood sample. A blood sample was taken at each visit for glucose, lipid profile and HbA1c. Total physical activity, weight-to-height ratio, body adiposity index and visceral adiposity index ...
