Abstract: Aim: To study the changes in lipid and lipoprotein parameters in a group of hypertensive patients, consuming palm oil or not, at the Abidjan Heart Institute.
Methods: We recruited 196 hypertensive patients, which were divided into two group’s consumers and non-consumers of palm oil. We analyzed total cholesterol, triglycerides, HDL cholesterol, LDL cholesterol and atherogenic index.
Results: Participants' mean age was 57.13 years. Among palm oil consumers, 56.7% had normal cholesterol levels, while 30.8% had high cholesterol levels. In non-palm oil users, cholesterolemia was normal in 56.5% and elevated in 27.2%. Similarly, serum values of triglycerides, HDL cholesterol, LDL cholesterol and atherogenic index, also showed no significant difference between palm oil consumers and non-consumers.
Conclusion: The consumption of palm oil does not significantly influence the lipid and lipoprotein parameters and therefore, has no effect on increasing blood pressure.
