Aim: To assess the role of high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (TG / HDL_C) triglycerides as a risk factor for coronary heart disease in females. Study design: A cross-sectional study. Place and duration of the study: In the Medicine Unit I of Nishter Hospital Multan for one year duration from February 2019 to February 2020. Methods: The study was conducted on 100 women with known heart problems to assess angina and 50 controls were referred to the exercise tolerance test (ETT). Fasting blood samples determined the total cholesterol (TC), triglyceride (TG), high density lipoprotein (HDL_C), low density lipoprotein (LDL_C) cholesterol and analyzed for correlation. Results: The lipid profile of patients (TG and HDL_C) was changed. The ratio of high density lipoprotein cholesterol (TG / HDL_C) to serum triglycerides has been found to be a risk factor for coronary heart disease in women. Conclusion: Studies have shown that high-density lipoprotein cholesterol triglyceride is associated with coronary heart disease. Key words: coronary artery disease, cholesterol, triglyceride.
