Limited data are available on patterns of change in lipids and lipoproteins as persons age.
The purpose of this report is to describe the 10-year change in total and high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol according to suspected eterminants in 898 Japanese-American men enrolled in the Honolulu Heart Program.
Data are based on examinations that occurred from 1970 to 1972 and at repeat examinations received 10 and 20 years later.
At the last examination, men were aged 71 to 93 years.
Mean reductions in total cholesterol in the second 10 years of follow-up (24 mg/dl) were more than double the reductions observed in the first 10 years (9 mg/dl).
Levels of total cholesterol declined and levels HDL cholesterol increased regardless of beginning levels of systolic blood pressure, mass index, physical activity, cigarette smoking status, or the use of treatment for hypertension or elevated total cholesterol.
Men with prevalent coronary heart disease experienced greater reductions (p<0.05) in total cholesterol during second 10 years of follow-up (32 mg/dl) versus men without coronary heart disease (22 mg/dl).
Adjustment for baseline covariates failed to alter these findings appreciably.
We conclude that alterations in total an HDL cholesterol with advancing age may be expected to occur regardless of risk factor status, disease prevalence, or pharmacologic intervention. (...)
