Abstract


The concentrations of total cholesterol (CH) in the blood plasma were determined among 246 students of the PFUR. The students were divided into groups according to concentrations of total cholesterol: the “optimal” (CH < 4.4 mmol/l); borderline 4.4 < CH < 5.4 mmol/l); and high (CH > 5.4 mmol/l) for persons under the age of 20 years and young adults older than 20 years, which were accepted as independent risk factors for ischemic heart disease IHD. Borderline values of CH were detected in 19% of students, who require a deeper examination to identify additional risk factors for IHD. Among 5% of the examined students, high concentrations of CH were revealed. This group of students also needs further evaluation and deciding on the need for dietary and pharmacological correction of hypercholesterolemia.
