The aim of this study was to determine the lipid and lipoproteins ratio in pregnant mothers and to evaluate their role in the interpretation of hyperlipidaemias. A total of 222 pregnant women who registered for ANC and 222 non-pregnant healthy women of the sameage and parity as control were recruited for the study. A sample of venous blood after an overnight fast was collected for analysis and interpretation. The mean ± SD age (years) of pregnant women, 27.317 ± 7.283 years and that of the non-pregnant women, 26.234 ± 6.234 years are not significantly different, p = 0.429. Total cholesterol, HDL-c and TGs were significantly higher in pregnant women (5.29 ± 1.04 mmol/l, 1.64 ± 0.42 mmol/l and 1.74 ± 0.42 mmol/l) compared with that of non-pregnant women (4.64 ± 0.92 mmol/l, 1.25 ± 0.35 mmol/l and 1.37 ± 0.45 mmol/l, respectively) All showed p < 0.000. The frequencies of hypercholesterolaemia, 96(43.2%) and hypertriglyceridaemia, 82 (36.9%), are significantly higher in the pregnant women than in the non-pregnant women, 58 (26.1%) and 26 (11.7%), respectively. TC/HDL-C ratio, 3.33 ± 1.01 and LDL/HDL-C ratio, 1.91 ± 0.85 are significantly lower in pregnant women compared with non-pregnant women counterparts, 3.89 ± 0.97 and 2.35 ± 0.84, respectively. Similarly the frequencies of increased TC/HDL-C ratio, 22 (9.9%) and LDL/HDL-C ratio, 16 (7.2%) are significantly less in the pregnant compared with the non-pregnant women, 54 (24.3%) and 28 (12.6%), respectively.
