Cad. saúde colet. [online]. 2019, vol.27, n.4, pp.368-373.  Epub 14-Nov-2019. ISSN 2358-291X.  https://doi.org/10.1590/1414-462x201900040004.

Background

Cardiovascular diseases are considered one of the main health conditions nowadays. The lipid profile of children and adolescents is directly associated with the prevalence of coronary disease in adults, since the atherosclerotic process begins to develop in youth and progresses in adult life.

Objective

To evaluate the lipid profile of children and adolescents in the city of Marau-RS.

Method

A retrospective study was carried out to evaluate the lipid profile of children and adolescents aged 1 to 19 years, from April 2016 to July 2017, a total of 272 patients.

Results

Among the patients analyzed, 34.7% presented hypercholesterolemia, 56.7% had below-desirable HDL levels, 16% had increased LDL levels and 16% had hypertriglyceridemia. Statistical analysis of the results shows a significantly higher concentration of total cholesterol, HDL and Triglycerides in girls when compared to boys.

Conclusion

The high percentage of dyslipidemia in childhood points to the need to implement public policies for the prevention of juvenile dyslipidemia. Thus minimizing cardiovascular diseases related to adult life in the population.
