Abstract: lDyslipidemia in the form of increased evel of triglyceride (TG), low-density lipoprotein (LDL) and cholesterol level and decreased high-density lipoprotein (HDL) level is a risk factor for atherosclerosis and the main predictor of cardiovascular diseases including stroke. Abnormality of serum lipid parameters is the major risk factor for ischemic stroke. Elevated serum cholesterol level is another risk factor for stroke, especially in the case of atherosclerosis and increased blood pressure. Hence based on above findings the present study was planned for Assessment of Alterations Lipid Profile in Patients Diagnosed with Acute Ischemic Stroke. The present study was planned in Department of General Medicine, Jawahar Lal Nehru Medical College & Hospital, Bhagalpur, Bihar, India. In the present study 200 cases of patients suffered from the strokes of age group 30 to 70 years were enrolled. The diagnosis was assigned by attending physicians. Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) or Computed Tomography (CT scan) reports were used for confirming final diagnosis. The first laboratory blood test reports were used to capture the lipid parameter measures. The data generated from the reported literate suggest that stroke is a multifactorial disease, there are multiple risk factors involved for the disease occurrence. Hence lipid profile assessment is proven to be of help to alert patients. Early recognition and treatment is helpful for reduction in morbidity and mortality.
