Objectives: To compare the changes in lipid profile in women with pre-eclampsia to normotensive pregnant women.
Method: This prospective observational study conducted in 300 patients, 150 being normotensive pregnant women and 150 hypertensive pregnant women. Lipid profile was estimated and compared.
Results: There is a significant increase in triglycerides, total cholesterol, LDL & VLDL in the cases group but no significant difference in HDL between both groups.
Conclusion: Pregnancy is associated with physiological hyperlipidemia. But abnormal increase in triglycerides, total cholesterol, LDL & VLDL could contribute to promotion of oxidative stress and vascular injury leading to pre-eclampsia.

Pre-eclampsia, CHL– Total cholesterol (mg/dl), TGL– Triglycerides (mg/dl), LDL– Low density lipoprotein (mg/dl), HDL– High density lipoprotein (mg/dl), VLDL– Very low density lipoprotein (mg/dl), BMI– Body mass Index (kg/m2).
