The relation between multiparity and lipid and lipoprotein levels was examined in a sample of 1275 Rancho Bernardo women aged 50-89.
Number of pregnancies ranged from 0 to 13 with a mean of 2.1. Pregnancy was unrelated to high density lipoprotein cholesterol level in women with 4 or fewer pregnancies, but women with 5 or more pregnancies had significantly lower levels both before and after adjustment for age, obesity, diabetes, alcohol and cigarette consumption, exercise and estrogen use.
