Furqan Moein Auda



The present work was designed to estimate the correlation between lipids profiles and sex hormones (Testosterone & Estradiol) in women with coronary heart disease undergoing catheterization    in addition to the measurement of iron status ,insulin, insulin resistance & body mass index . Twenty  female  patients with coronary heart disease were participated in the present study, with age range 50-70 years. Fifteen apparently healthy females were selected as control group. Serum levels of total Cholesterol ,HDL ,iron and TIBC were measured spectrophotometrically while UIBC, ETIBS, TS% , transferring concentration and LDL were calculated mathematically. Serum ferritin, Testosterone , Estradiol & insulin were measured using ELISA technique. The results showed significant increase (p<0.05) in Lipid Profile & iron indices  of CHD patients in comparing with healthy control group except iron , HDL,TS, which decreased significantly (p<0.05) in those patients in comparing with control group . Serum Testosterone , estradiol and insulin no significantly (p<0.05) in those patients in comparing with control group. The results revealed a positive correlation between iron store , TG ,LDL, Cholesterol with CHD , reversible correlation between estradiol with CHD and There is no statistically significant correlation noticed among iron  , HDL, testosterone ,insulin, and blood sugar with CHD.  It can be concluded that female  patients with CHD undergo Catheterization  are at high risk for  hyperlipidemia .
