Abstract: Content of cholesterol in high density lipoproteins (HDL) and other blood lipids was studied in men of 40-59 years old from the aboriginal population of the Kirghiz Alpine. Concentration of HDL cholesterol and its ratio in the blood total cholesterol of the Alpine population inhabitants was distinctly higher as compared with the corresponding patterns of the foothills inhabitants. At the same time, total cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, VLDL cholesterol, triglycerides as well as the magnitude of atherogeneity cholesterol coefficient were distinctly lower in the Alpine inhabitants as compared with the persons of foothills. Hypoxia, extremal climatic conditions and specific nutrition appear to be responsible for the alterations observed in blood lipid composition.
