Abstract

Introduction: This study was designed to compare the lipid profiles of hypertensive and non-hypertensive cases. Materials and Methods:In this case-control study, we assessed 200 hypertensive patients alongside 200 healthy individuals who were referred to our cardiology clinics from 2007 to 2008, in Mashhad, Iran. Blood pressure and serum lipids profile including total cholesterol, triglyceride, High-density lipoprotein (HDL) and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) were evaluated in both the case and control group. Results: Total cholesterol and the mean of serum LDL level were significantly higher in the hypertensive patients compared to non-hypertensive cases (P=0.001), while the mean of serum triglyceride levels was higher in the case group compared to the control group (P= 0.001). Conclusion: We concluded that only the serum triglyceride levels were significantly different between the hypertensive and non-hypertensive individuals.
