Abstract
This study was done on 50 anaemic cases and 50 non anaemic controls to study the clinical presentation and effect on lipid profile of anaemia. Younger individuals are more likely to have severe anaemia. Cases with severe anaemia have more symptoms. They have higher mean pulse rate, lower mean blood pressure and mean BMI. Vegetarians are more likely to have severe anaemia. Cases with severe anaemia also have more signs on examination. Anaemia is associated with significant hypercholesterolemia, with lowering in all lipid subfractions. The extent of hypercholesterolemia is proportional to the severity of anaemia. The type of anaemia has no effect on the hypercholesterolemia seen in anaemia. Further studies are required to study the long term effect of anaemia on the risk of developing atherosclerosis and to study the long term effect of treatment of anaemia on lipid levels and cardiovascular morbidity and mortality.
