Hyperlipoproteinemia in active population working in social activities in Zaječar

Milena Mladenović, Jelena Ristić



Hyperlipoproteinemia is a condition caused by the increased level of particles interconnected in soluble complex in plasma. Hiperlipoproteinemia, hypertension, smoking and obesity are important risk factors for the development of arthrosclerosis and cardiovascular diseases. Medical treatment is therefore important not only in the prevention of the above disorders but in the prevention of related consequences as well. The goal of the work is to determine the percentage of hypercholesterolemia and hypertriglyceridemia in the potentially healthy population and to determine its relation with other risk factors such as hypertension, obesity, positive family history of cardiovascular diseases and smoking. From April to September 2009, the Prevention Centre in Zaječar performed field screening of active population working in social activities aging 20 to 65. Respondents received preventive cards. Each card included patient’s anamnestic data, weight and height measurements and blood cholesterol and triglycerides levels provided by Accutrend GCT kit. The total of 349 people were examined, 93 men and 256 women. Hiperlipoproteinemia was detected in 182 respondents (52.15%). A higher percentage of respondents - 70 (38.46%) with hiperlipoproteinemia was getting antihypertensive therapy as compared to those with negative lipids 32 (19.16%). A number of respondents - 107 (58.79%) was obese and had hiperlipoproteinemia as compared to those 75 (41.21%) who were not obese. 104 (57.14%) of them with hiperlipoproteinemia had a positive family history of cardiovascular diseases as compared to those 70 (41.92%) with negative family history. According to our results, smoking did not influence the lipid status of our respondents. We detected hyperlipoproteinemia in one half of our respondents and found conditional correlation with other risk factors such as hypertension, obesity and positive genetic anamnesis. Primary health care professionals should consider risk factors for cardiovascular diseases and invite healthy population for preventive examinations in order to set an early diagnosis.
Key words: hiperlipoproteinemia, risk factor, cardiovascular disease
