OBJECTIVE: To determine the frequency of dyslipidemia in patients with essential hypertension. PATIENTS AND METHODS: The descriptive case series study was conducted from July 2015 to December 2015 on the hypertensive individual. The inclusion criteria of the study were the patients of ≥30 years of age; either gender had history of essential hypertension (known cases) for more than 3 years duration. All the individuals were assessed for dyslipidemia after at least 14 hours fasting. The frequency / percentages (%) and means ±SD computed for study variables. RESULTS: Total one hundred hypertensive individuals were recruited and study for dyslipidemia. The mean ±SD for age, systolic and diastolic blood pressure was 53.98±5.87, 150.87±7.65 and 100.72±5.85. The frequency of dyslipidemia was 48 (68.5%) with male gender predominant (75%) along with urban population (65%). The mean ±SD for Triglycerides (mg/dl), Total cholesterol (mg/dl), High density lipoprotein (mg/dl), Low density lipoprotein (mg/dl) and Very low density lipoprotein (mg/dl) was 230±10.76, 265±12.87, 27.76±2.98, 160.72±13.85 and 40.98±9.53 while the serum triglyceride and cholesterol was observed to be raised in 12.5% and 12.5% and LDL 14.5% wheres the mix dyslipidemia was observed in 41.6%. CONCLUSION: The correlation of dyslipidaemia and essential hypertension should be properly evaluated and treated to save the patients from long term chronic complications associated with hypertension and hyperlipidemia. Keywords: Hypertension, Lipid profile and Dyslipidemia.
