Aim: Determination of the incidence of ischemic or hemorrhagic stroke and comparison of average LDL levels in ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke. Place and Duration: In the Medicine Unit II department of Nishter Hospital Multan for one-year duration from March 2019 to March 2020. Methods: 310 patients between 20 and 70 years of age from both age groups were selected for this study. Computed tomography of the brain of all patients was reviewed to determine the type of ischemic or hemorrhagic stroke. A Venus sample for LDL levels was scheduled according to protocol after 8 hours of fasting overnight within 24 hours of admission. All relevant information, including LDL levels and confidence variables such as diabetes, fasting blood sugar> 110 and hypertension, systolic blood pressure> 140, diastolic blood pressure> 90, are specifically indicated for this purpose in form. Mean LDL levels were compared in patients with ischemic or hemorrhagic stroke. Results: In this study, 132 (41.25%) were 20-50 years old, and 188 (58.75%) were 51-70 years old, mean and SD was 47.65 + 5.32 years, 199 (62 , 19%) men and 121 (37.81%) were women, 290 (90.31%) ischemic, and 31 (9.69%) had hemorrhagic stroke, a comparison of serum LDL cholesterol levels in ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke reveals 127 , 21 + 34.31 in ischemic stroke and 98.65 + 3.76 in hemorrhagic stroke, p value 0.12, which is significant. Conclusion: The study finds that high LDL levels are an important risk factor for ischemic stroke compared to hemorrhagic stroke. IHD is an important risk factor for ischemic stroke compared to hemorrhagic stroke. Therefore, statins should be used for ischemic stroke to minimize stroke recurrence.
