ABSTRACT:

Objective: We aimed to analyze the average serum values of calcium and lipid profile in patients of cholelithiasis. Material and Methods: Present research was cross-sectional in its design. The place of this research was Services Hospital, Lahore (February to September 2017). Overall, we selected 380 cholelithiasis patients and analyze the serum calcium and serum lipid. Results: We enrolled in the research sample having average age as (43.180 ± 13.970) years. Whereas, the average serum values of calcium, HDL, LDL, TC and TG were respectively (11.550 ± 01.180), (40.21 ± 3.1), (137.98 ± 9.79), (204.27 ± 24.12) and (198.94 ± 72.12). The average value for every serum was measured while taking the unit value as Mg/dL. We also calculated average height (inches) and weight (kilograms) which was respectively (63.57 ± 4.14) inches and (54.30 ± 13.07) kilograms. Conclusion: It is evident from the research outcomes that the gallstone disease incidence is more common among the female population than males. Females are more prone to disease onset than males and they are at an increased risk of gallstone. Various gallstones occurrences are also attributed to increased lipid and calcium serums; especially among females. Keywords: Lipid Profile, Serum Calcium, Cholelithiasis and Gallstone.
