The lipid metabolism indicators were analyzed: total cholesterol (TC), cholesterol of low density lipoprotein (LDL cholesterol), high density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL cholesterol), triglycerides (TG) and atherogenic index (IA) in different age groups of men and females in Barnaul Altai region. It was shown that in the examined men and females the levels of total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol exceeded the norm; levels of HDL cholesterol and TG in both sex groups corresponded to the reference values. With age the level of TC and LDL cholesterol in the serum increases, respectively, and the AI. The TG content does not undergo significant changes, and the HDL cholesterol level tends to decrease. Data from biochemical blood tests were used to classify lipid spectrum disorders. Atherogenic dyslipidemia was found in 69.9±2.2% of cases, and in 17.2 ± 1.8% – combined dyslipidemia.
