Abstract

The National Cholesterol Education Program treatment guidelines define a plasma total cholesterol of 50 years, systemic hypertension and diabetes mellitus compared to non-CAD control subjects. In women with CAD and total cholesterol ≤200 mg/ dl, HDL cholesterol ≤45 mg/dl and diabetes mellitus were also significantly prevalent. Multiple logistic regression analyses revealed that HDL cholesterol, hypertension and age in men and very low density lipoprotein cholesterol in women were significantly associated with CAD after adjustment for other risk factors. These results suggest that a complete lipid and lipoprotein analysis be obtained in all patients with CAD, irrespective of the plasma (or serum) total cholesterol level.
