Lipid Association of India (LAI) is a team of eminent doctors in the field of Cardiovascular Medicine, Internal Medicine, Pharmacology and young doctors who are interested in the field of lipidology.

In India the incidence of dyslipidemia is reported to be between 10-13% in various studies, thus reflecting the magnitude of this health problem when viewed in context of a population of 1.27 billion. Studies have also shown that prevalence of atherogenic small, dense LDL, hypertriglyceridemia and abnormally low HDL is significantly higher in Asian Indians as compared with white Caucasians in USA. Therefore, the guidelines on hyperlipidemia management by the American College of Cardiology and the American Heart Association may not be applicable to Indian population.

Our objective is to focus on research activities related to prevalence of dyslipidemia in Indian population and to formulate guidelines for dyslipidemia management for Indians. We will also be working towards creating awareness among general public regarding the adverse effects of dyslipidemia in order to achieve our aim of “A Healthy Heart for Better Tomorrow”.

If you need to speak with one of our doctors regarding your heart disease, high cholesterol levels and high blood sugar, make an appointment now!

The number of people suffering from heart problems is increasing day by day. We want you to be aware of your health problems and how to take care of yourself. If you want suggestions, make an enquiry today.

Familial Hypercholesterolemia Registry


Every year LAI organizes some sports activity to create awareness in public about cardiovascular diseases. World Health Organizations estimates that by 2020 more than 50% of cardiac patients worldwide will be Indians.

Assessment of lipid profile in everyone in the age group of 18-20 years
Given a high incidence of cardiovascular disease in Indians, we recommend mandatory screening of blood cholesterol profile or lipid profile at the time of college admission and evaluation of the report by a physician. This will help in early identification of young individuals who could be at high risk of developing heart problems in future and for implementation of effective therapeutic strategies.

Everyone should keep LDL-C level around 70mgl/dl in blood for effective prevention of heart diseases irrespective of age

It is important to understand that every 39 mg/dL (1 mmol/L) reduction in serum LDL-C (bad cholesterol), sustained over a period of five years, results in the following:

10% reduction in all-cause mortality
20% reduction in coronary mortality

24% reduction in nonfatal myocardial infarction
24% reduction in need for revascularization procedures.


LAI Expert Consensus Statement on Management

The burden of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) in India is alarmingly high and is a cause of concern. Indians are not only at high risk of developing ASCVD but also get the disease at an early age, have a more severe form of the disease, and have poorer outcomes compared with Western populations. Access to health care is also not optimal in India, and the treatment of ASCVD remains expensive. For all these reasons, prevention of ASCVD should take priority, not only from the perspective of governmental perspective of all Indians.    Read More
