This study examined the serum status of serum alpha-tocopherol (Toc), retinol (Ret), and lipids (cholesterol and triglycerides) and the correlations among them in sera of persons aged 10-72 (42 males and 38 females) living in southeastern Nepal.
Serum levels of Toc, Ret and cholesterol (Chol) were positively related to age (r=0.47, r=0.55, and r=0.39, p<0.001, respectively).
No significant differences were observed between the sexes for average Toc (3.74 and 3.37 mug/ml) and Chol (133 and 128 mg/100 ml) for males and females, respectively.
The levels of mean Ret and triglycerides (TG) were significantly higher for males (534 ng/ml and 132 mg/100 ml, respectively) than for females (420 ng/ml and 102 mg/100 ml, respectively) (p<0.01 and p<0.05, respectively).
