Coronary artery disease is the buildup of plaque in the arteries that supply oxygen-rich blood to your heart. Plaque causes a narrowing or blockage that could result in a heart attack. Symptoms include chest pain or discomfort and shortness of breath. Treatment includes lifestyle changes and medication that target your risk factors and or possible surgery. Coronary artery disease is caused by atherosclerosis. Atherosclerosis is the buildup of plaque inside your arteries. Plaque consists of cholesterol fatty substance, waste products, calcium and the clot making substance fibrin. As plaque continues to collect on your artery walls, your arteries narrow and stiffen. Plaque can clog or damage your arteries, which limits or stops blood flow to your muscle. If your heart does not get enough blood, it can’t get the oxygen and nutrients it needs to work properly. This condition is called ischemia. Not getting enough blood supply to your heart muscle can lead to chest discomfort or chest pain called angina. It puts you at risk for a heart attack. The present study aims to assess the role of HDL to triglycerides Vs LDL to triglycerides as an indicator in coronary artery disease. Quantitative experimental research was conducted among 60 coronary artery disease. A Purposive sampling technique was used to select the samples. Self-structured questionnaires were used to collect demographic data. The study results show, LDL to triglyceride had significant role as an indicator in coronary artery disease., p<0.001. Thereby, this indicates that this ratio of LDL to triglycerides as an indicator of coronary artery disease.
