STUDY OF SERUM LIPID PROFILE IN BETA-THALASSEMIA MAJOR PATIENTS
Keywords:Beta Thalassemia Major, Lipid Profile, Hypocholesterolemia.
Background: To study lipid profile in Beta-Thalassemia Major Patients.
Methods: A cross-sectional was done on 50 diagnosed Cases of beta-thalassemia major in the age group of 1 year to 18 years receiving regular blood transfusions; not suffering from any ailment or any other disease leading to deranged lipid profile were included.
Results: Lipid analyses of controls and thalassemic children. It is clear from the results that beta thalassemia major patients had significantly lower total cholesterol (TC), high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL) and low-density lipoprsotein cholesterol (LDL) compared with controls.
Conclusion: Lipid profile in Beta thalassmia patients show significantly low levels of total cholesterol, LDLC and HDL-C.
Keywords: Beta Thalassemia Major, Lipid Profile, Hypocholesterolemia.
