OBJECTIVE To characterize the lipid-related atherogenic risk factors in iron deficiency anaemia (IDA) patients. DESIGN AND METHODS Twenty IDA women were compared to healthy age-matched controls. Lipoprotein profile, cholesteryl ester transfer protein (CETP), paraoxonase (PON) 1 and lipoprotein-associated phospholipase A(2) (LpPLA(2)) activities and plasma levels of oxidized-LDL were evaluated. RESULTS Triglycerides were higher (median [range]) (1.0 [0.5-1.9] vs. 0.7 [0.5-1.5] mmol/L, p<0.05… CONTINUE READING
