Abstract

Children of parents who had their first acute myocardial infarction (AMI) before the age of 45 years were investigated and divided into 2 groups. Group 1 consisted of 12 children: both their parents or one parent and grandparents suffered from AML Group 2 consisted of 55 children, each of whom had one parent with AML Serum levels of total cholesterol (TC) and lipid peroxide (LP) were higher in these children and HDL-cholesterol values were lower than those of 39 control children. The extent of serum TC and HDL-C differences was similar in both high risk groups but the serum LP level was significantly higher in group 1 than in group 2. The serum free cholesterol (FC) level was higher in group 1 than in controls. Children were treated according to a program giving advice on diet, physical exercise and health education for 1 year. At the end of this period the serum HDL-C level increased in both groups, while LP and TC levels decreased. The high serum FC level did not change.
