Comparison of Non-HDL Cholesterol Levels in Patients with Dipper Hypertension and Non-dipper Hypertension Mustafa Erdoğan, Seydahmet Akın, Sinan Kazan, Cumali Yalçın, Didem Kılıç Aydın, Özcan Keskin, Mehmet Aliustaoğlu Lütfü Kırdar Eğitim Araştırma Hastanesi, İstanbul, Türkiye INTRODUCTION: In this study we aimed to compare non- HDL cholesterol levels between patients with dipper hypertension and non-dipper hypertension. METHODS: Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring was performed and serum cholesterol levels were measured for all patients. RESULTS: Mean non-HDL cholesterol level was 136,7±7 mg/dl in dipper hypertensive group; whereas it was detected 143,3±6 mg/dl in non-dipper hypertensive group, the difference was statistically insignificant (p: 0,1).

INTRODUCTION: In this study we aimed to compare non- HDL cholesterol levels between patients with dipper hypertension and non-dipper hypertension.
METHODS: Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring was performed and serum cholesterol levels were measured for all patients.
RESULTS: Mean non-HDL cholesterol level was 136,7±7 mg/dl in dipper hypertensive group; whereas it was detected 143,3±6 mg/dl in non-dipper hypertensive group, the difference was statistically insignificant (p: 0,1).
DISCUSSION AND CONCLUSION: Non-dipper hypertensive patients in our cohort had higher non-high density lipoprotein levels when compared to dipper hypertensive patients.The difference was not statistically significant. The number of patient in our study may be the reason for that. Since the relationship between non-HDL-C and NDHT is still obscure, further studies with larger cohorts are needed to elucidate this question.

GİRİŞ ve AMAÇ: Bu çalışmada dipper ve non-dipper hipertansiyonlu hastalarda non-HDL kolesterol seviyelerini karşılaştırmayı amaçladık.
YÖNTEM ve GEREÇLER: Tüm hastalara ambulatuar kan basıncı takibi yapıldı ve serum kolesterol seviyeleri ölçüldü.
BULGULAR: Dipper hipertansiyonlu grupta ortalama non-HDL kolesterol seviyesi 136,7±7 mg/dl iken non-dipper hipertansiyonlu grupta ise 143,3±6 mg/ dl saptandı, farklılık istatistiksel olarak anlamlı değildi (p: 0,1).
TARTIŞMA ve SONUÇ: Çalışma grubumuzda non-dipper hipertansiyonlu astalar dipper hipertansiyonlu hastalara göre daha yüksek non-HDL kolesterol seviyesine sahipti. Farklılık istatistiksel olarak anlamlı değildi. Çalışma grubumuzun küçük olması, bunda rol oynamış olabilir. Non-dipper hipertansiyon ve non- HDL kolesterol arasındaki ilişki hala bilinmemketedir. Bu konuyu aydınlatmak için daha büyük hasta gruplarıyla ileri çalışmalara ihtiyaç vardır.
