Hypercholesterolemia Among Apparently Healthy University Students


Authors: Said M. Shawar, Neda A. Al-Bati, Ali Al-Mahameed, Das S. Nagalla, Mohammed Obeidat
Abstract: Background: Hypercholesterolemia (HC) is a major risk factor
in the development of coronary heart disease (CHD). Serum
cholesterol is directly related to complications and mortalities
associated with heart diseases. There are a few studies that describe
HC among youths in the Arab Gulf countries. We sought to
evaluate HC among young healthy university students to assess
their risk of developing CHD.
Methods: Lipid profile of 166 students between the ages of 16-
30 years (Mean; 20.49±2.96) were examined and blood glucose,
total protein, albumin, thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) and
the inflammation marker high sensitivity CRP (hsCRP) were
determined. Each volunteer filled a questionnaire about her/his
lifestyle and personal and family medical histories and height and
weight were measured to determine body mass index (BMI). The
data were analyzed using SPSS version 17. Chi-Square was used
to determine the relation between categorical variables. A p-value
<0.05 was considered statistically significant.
Results: According to the American Heart Association
criteria, 44(26.5%) students were identified with primary
hypercholesterolemia (PHC) in the first testing round. After proper
health counseling, the same tests were repeated after 2-3 weeks in
all 44 hypercholesterolemic students. We found only 26(15.6%) of
them to be hypercholesterolemic. There was a significant relation
between high total cholesterol (TC) and high TC/HDLC, as well
as high or very high hsCRP and high TC/HDLC (both, p<0.001).
Males tend to have higher TC/HDLC and hsCRP than females
(both p0.002 and 0.005, respectively). Family history of CHD was
found in 8 students and obesity was recorded in 5 volunteers.
