AIM: to determine the role of low HDL-cholesterol, and high total cholesterol, LDL-Cholesterol and triglyceride as risk factors for ischemic stroke at Dr. Cipto Mangunkusumo Hospital. METHOD: a study was conducted on 76 patients with an age range of 40-70 years. Subjects consisted of 38 post ischemic stroke patients and 38 control subjects with a diagnosis other than stroke. The study sample consisted of serum for lipid profile assessment. Total cholesterol and triglyceride were assessed using enzymatic method, while HDL-cholesterol and LDL-cholesterol using direct homogenous enzymatic method. Statistical analysis was performed using chi-square and multivariate analysis using logistic regression. RESULTS: low HDL-cholesterol was found in ischemic stroke patients and demonstrated a significant difference compared to control subjects (p<0.05). The results of total cholesterol, triglyceride, LDL-cholesterol did not demonstrate a significant difference. The odds ratio (3.09; CI 95%: 1.04; 8.73) demonstrates that low HDL-cholesterol is a risk factor for ischemic stroke. CONCLUSION: a low HDL-cholesterol level is a risk factor for ischemic stroke, with an odds ratio of 3.09, while total cholesterol, triglyceride and high LDL-cholesterol levels were not risk factors for ischemic stroke.
