Abstract

Background

Some studies have shown a higher occurrence of unfavorable lipid profile in women with migraine as compared to the general population.

Aim

The aim of our study was to assess the link between lipid profile and the frequency of migraine attacks.

Patients and methods

64 female migraine patients, mean age 40±10.84 years and mean duration of the disease 18.52±7.57 years, were included into the study. Lipid profile (total cholesterol, TC; low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, LDL-C; high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, HDL-C; triglycerides, TG) was evaluated in all migraine patients. Frequency of migraine attacks was calculated from the amount of migraine episodes within the last 3 months.

Results

The correlation between TC and TG and the frequency of the migraine attacks were statistically significant.

Conclusion

TC and TG values may have an influence on migraine severity and also contribute to the increased risk of cardiovascular diseases, especially in women.
