Dr. R. Panimathi, Dr. Chelladurai

Abstract: Alcoholism is a medical and social problem worldwide. Patients with more advanced alcohol related problems may meet the criteria for alcohol dependence or abuse. Consumption of alcohol in large amounts for a long duration produces toxic effects on liver, thus impairing the lipid metabolism, and hence alteration of serum lipid profile is seen. Aim: The aim of the study is to compare the serum lipid profile and lipid indices among alcoholic patients (study group) and non-alcoholic patients (control group). Materials and methods: This is an age matched comparative study. The study population includes 50, self- reported, chronic, regular and excess alcohol drinking persons; and the control group includes 50 persons who did not consume alcohol. Fasting serum lipid profile was estimated and lipid indices were calculated. Result and observation: Mean and Standard deviation of lipid parameters and lipid indices show a significant p-value (TC/HDL ratio -
