Evaluation of Serum Levels of Lipid Profile in Patient with Chronic Periodontitis Patients

Zainab J. Raheem [2]

Abstract: Background Chronic Periodontitis, a prevalent oral disease, chronic infections. , has been linked to several systemic health changes, like changing in lipid metabolism. Aims of the study were to evaluate the serum levels of lipid profile (total cholesterol, triglycerides high density lipoproteins, low density lipoproteins and very low density lipoproteins. In study and control groups and compare between them. Also, test the correlation between the serum levels of lipid profile with clinical periodontal parameters. Materials and Methods 50 subjects, males and females were included in this study with age range (35-50) years old, they were divided into two groups [CP group chronic periodontitis group (25 patients)] and control group (25 systemically healthy subjects, have healthy periodontium). Periodontal health status was determined by measuring the following clinical periodontal parameters (Plaque index (PL. I), Gingival index (GI), Bleeding on probing (BOP), Probing pocket depth (PPD) and Clinical attachment level (CAL)). Serum levels of lipid profile were measured by Enzymatic colorimetric method. Results The results showed that mean values of (TC, TGL, HDL, LDL and VLDL) were high in CP group than control group with highly significant difference at P
