Abstract

Objective. To determine serum levels of lipid, cholesterol, triglycericles and lipoproteins in newborns and their mothers and to know the association between them. Material and Methods. Blood samples were taken from 200 newborns and from their mothers, and analyzed for lipid, cholesterol, triglyceride and lipoprotein content in an autoanalyzer. Data were analyzed with the Epi Info 6 program. Central tendency measurements, variance analysis and Pearson correlation coefficient were obtained. Results. Average lipid levels in newborn blood samples was 625.2±130, 158.8±44 mg/dl of cholesterol, 136.9±97 mg/dl of triglycerides, 70.5±23.9 mg/dl LDL, 52.7±14 mg/dl HDL and 26.5±15.5 mg/dl VLDL. Conclusions. Newborn cholesterol levels were similar to values reported by Alpers and higher than levels published by the American Committee of Pediatric Biochemistry in USA. An association between levels in mothers and their children was found.
