Ibrahim Farooque*, Sangeeta Singhal**, M. Aslam**, Jawaid A. Khan***.

Background: The beneficial effects of exercise on plasma lipids have been widely explored. These changes depend upon the type of sports in which one is indulged. The aim of the present study was to analyze these changes in different sportspersons. Methods: 32 male sportspersons participating in 3 different games in the university were selected for this study. Lipid profile of the three groups was compared to each other. Results : Total Cholesterol (TC), Triglyceride (TG) and Low Density Lipoprotein (LDL) levels were found to be significantly lower in distance runners as compared to football players and basketball players . Whereas High Density Lipoprotein (HDL) level was found to be significantly increased in runners as compared to other groups. Conclusion: The results of this study suggest that the lipid profile is more favourable in sports involving more aerobic activity with less physical stress.[Farooque I NJIRM 2014; 5(1) : 13-16]
