Background and purpose : High serum lipid levels is a major risk factor for the development of cardiovascular diseases. Therefore, it’s earty diagnosis and treatment can reduce morbidity and mortality. In this case- control study serum lipid levels in panic and non panic anxiety disorder and normal population were compared.
Materials and methods : Serum cholestrol, TG, LDL, VLDL and HDL levels were measured in 30 patients with panic disorders and compared with 30 non panic anxiety disorder and 30 control subjects.
Results : The mean cholesterol and LDL levels of the patients with panic disorder was significantly higher than other groups (P<0.05). No significant differences in TG, HDL and VLDL levels were found between the three groups.
Conclusion : The findings of this study indicate that increase of noradernergic activity alone may not be responsible for elevation in lipid levels in patients with panic disorder.
