Keywords: Lipid profile, Cronary heart disease, Dyslipidemia


Coronary artery disease is leading cause of morbidity and mortality in both developing and developed countries.  This cross sectional analytic   study was conducted in Nangarhar university Teaching hospital in 2017 June to 2018 July , was undertaken to study dyslipidemia among the patients admitted to hospital with coronary artery disease. 111 subsequent cases diagnosed as coronary artery disease 49 were male (44.1%) and 62(55.9%) female age range 38-80 years. Age, sex, Blood pressure, History of smoking and Body Mass Index were recorded in each subject in standard questioner. Blood samples for investigations of lipid profile i.e. serum cholesterol (CHO), Triglyceride (TG), High Density Lipoprotein– cholesterol (HDL-C) and Low Density Lipoprotein-cholesterol (LDL-C) were collected from Patients. In study 87(78.37% were Have hypertension and 84(75.7 %) had family history of hypertension. It was found that LDL (Mean±SD) (92.47±17.50), HDL (40.44±6.90) and TG high level (193.46±40.83) and total cholesterol (175.55±31.43). 62(55.9%) has positive family history of Diabetes mellitus, 87(78.37%) History of Hypertension, and it was found that High prevalence of Dyslipidemia (hypercholesterolemia, Hypertriglyceridemia and Low HDL) were significantly in all age groups.13.46% normal weight, 76.57% were overweight and 23.42% are obese.
