Study of Homocysteine Level in Myocardial Infarction in Rural Background of Jharkhand
Abstract: Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the main cause of death worldwide. Among several cause of cardiovascular risk factors, such as age, food habits, smoking and hyperlipidemia, hyperhomocysteinemia has emerged as important factor in increasing risk of CVD. However, the clear relationship between the level of homocysteine and increasing risk of CVD remain poorly understood. The aim of the study is to evaluate the association between homocysteine in serum and increasing risk of CVD in patients with acute myocardial infraction in the rural Garhwa, Jharkhand. In addition, correlation of age, smoking, body weight, food habit with homocysteine level in myocardial infraction patients were studied. This association might act as a surrogate marker to identify early case to diagnose patients with myocardial infraction.
