Abstract/OtherAbstract:
In order to observe variations according to reproductive status, serum total cholesterol (TC) and HDL cholesterol (HDL-C) were investigated in 153 pregnant, in 153 age-adjusted non-pregnant females, in 787 females aged 45-54 years living in a northern suburb of Tokyo, and in 150 12-year-old girls from a private junior high school in a southern suburb of Tokyo. Non-menstruating (non-menarcheal, postmenopausal) females had significantly higher TC and significantly lower HDL-C/TC than menstruating (menarcheal, premenopausal) females did in both the age groups of 12 and 45-54 years, although no significant difference of HDL-C was found between them. The menstruating females tended to be more overweight in Quetelet's index and had thicker skinfolds. Pregnant females at the eighth month of gestation revealed a significantly high value of both TC and HDL-C vs age-adjusted non-pregnant females, while at the fourth month of gestation only HDL-C was high.
