ABSTRACT
Gestational hypertension is multi factorial disorder of pregnancy affecting health of mother and fetus. To know relationship between serum lipids and gestational hypertension serum lipid levels of gestational hypertensive women were measured. Serum levels of triglycerides (TGL), total cholesterol (TC), low density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDLC), very low density lipoprotein cholesterol (VLDLC) and high density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDLC) in 50 gestational hypertensive women and 30 normotensive pregnant women were measured by established methods. The serum lipid profiles of gestational hypertension women were compared with normotensive pregnant women. In gestational hypertension women serum TGL, TC, LDLC, VLDLC were elevated where as HDLC level was more in normotensive pregnant women. The elevated serum TGL.TC, LDLC,VLDLC and low HDLC levels may contribute to pathogenesis of gestational hypertension and lead to development of coronary artery disease.
