Abstract

THE RELATION BETWEEN CHOLESTEROL AND PLASMA N-3, N-6 AND SATURATED FATTY ACIDS OF PREGNANT SUDANESE WOMEN

Dr. Khalil A. K. H.*

ABSTRACT

Cholesterol is a member of steroids group. It is found naturally in animals and rarely in plants, it has two forms either esterified (cholesterol esters) or free. Essential fatty acids are polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) which contain more than one double bond. The purpose of this study was to investigate and correlate between the level of fatty acid composition in plasma phosphatidylcholine and cholesterol of pregnant Sudanese women. Blood samples were obtained from the pregnant women at delivery time in Khartoum state hospitals. Full and detailed history and examinations were performed in the study groups. Plasma lipids were extracted by Folch method and separated by Gas Liquid Chromatography (GLC).Blood cholesterol level were calculated. A positive co relation was found between cholesterol with saturated fatty acids and omega-6 fatty acids, and negative with omega-3 and omega-3/omega-6 ratio among the pregnant Women.
