This study was carried out to investigate the correlation between homocysteine and serum lipids which are known risk factors of stroke.

Methods :
The subjects were a total of 60 patients divided into a control group (n=30) and a sample group (n=30). The control group was normal homocysteine level without clinical symptoms, and the sample group was high homocysteine level with headache, dizziness, hypertension and so on, clinical symptoms. Each group was measured and compared for serum homocysteine, total cholesterol, triglyceride(TG), low density lipoprotein(LDL), and high density lipoprotein(HDL).

Total cholesterol, TG, and LDL were significantly increased and HDL was significantly decreased in the sample group, which was a high homocysteine level group compared with the control group, which was a normal homocysteine level group.

In these results, it was suggested that increase of homocysteine leads to increase of serum total cholesterol, TG, LDL, but causes decrease of HDL. It seemed that risk of stroke is more at high homocysteine level than normal.
Key words: Homocysteine, Serum lipids, Stroke
