SERUM PROTEIN AND ALBUMIN, LIPID AND CHOLESTEROL CONCENTRATION IN NORMAL ADULT POPULATION OF DISTRICT ABBOTTABAD
AbstractAbstract: Serum Protein and albumin, lipid and cholesterol levels were studied in 200randomly selected apparently healthy subjects (118 males and 82 females) of differentages. Age range was between 20—70 years. No significant difference was observed intotal protein and albumin levels in both sexes of various age groups. Lipid pattern waspositively correlated with the age in males however, in females, this pattern wasdecreased after 50 years’ age. Cholesterol showed a progressive rise in both sexesbetween the ages 20—49 years after which begin to fall. Results also showed Lipid andCholesterol levels were lower in the females compared to age matched males.
