Abstract: Objective To investigate the normal values of serum lipids and liver enzymes for adult Saudi females living within the restricted environment of western region of Saudi Arabia (Makkah). Materials and Methods In this prospective cross-sectional, blood samples were collected from 169 female donors, their age ranged from 18-25 years. All study population were fasting for 10-12 hours before sample collection. Liver function tests and lipid profiles were tested. Results The result obtained for cholesterol, triglyceride, HDL, total protein, albumin, ATL, AST and ALP showed a range that lies approximately within the global values, however, upper limits for cholesterol, triglyceride, HDL and ATL showed significantly low levels. LDL and bilirubin showed significantly lower range than the global values and the reference range values reported by the ministry of health Saudi Arabia. Conclusion The variations produced in some parameters, as compared to the similar values mentioned in literature and the reference values reported by ministry of health, Saudi Aeabia, indicate that the social, environmental, nutritional and dietary factors as well as awareness of health and body mass index may have an effect on the normal liver function test in Saudi females.
