Pak J Med Health Sci Jan ;8(2):280-7.
Myocardial Infarction is one of the leading causes of death worldwide. Serum lipid profile and BMI are found to be major risk factors in patients suffering from MI. smoking; faulty dietary habits and low physical activity or sedentary life style enhances the risk of myocardial infarction. However, these are modifiable risk factors and can be changed by altering the style of living. These factors also greatly modify the serum lipid profile. Of all the serum lipid profiles analyzed maximum patients showed an increase in LDL, Triglycerides and a significant decrease in serum HDL levels. Enzyme assays were also carried out. There was a significant raise observed in CK and LDH of majority of patients.
