dc.description.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 hyperlipidaemiaEN
