Özet

The aim of this study was to examine the plasma Cu, Zn, and Mg levels in three different groups (control, hyperlipidemic, and hypercholesterolemic) and to determine any correlation between these parameters and the level of triglyceride (T.G), cholesterol (Chol), LDL, and HDL. For this purpose, serum Cu, Zn, and Mg levels were determined by atomic absorbtion spectrophotometry in three groups: Group I (n = 35 control, normal lipid profile); Group II (n = 36 hyperlipidemic); Group III (n = 15 familial hypercholesterolemia), and the results were statistically analyzed.
