Migraine with aura, cholesterol increase risk of stroke in women

coronary heart disease, epidemiologic studies have not clearly established lipid levels as risk factors for ischemic strokes," said Kurth. His group examined this question in almost 28,000 women who provided blood samples in the Women's Health Study.

After nine years of follow-up, women with total cholesterol above 240 milligrams/deciliter had a 47 percent increased risk for ischemic stroke compared to women whose cholesterol was lower than 200 mg/dL. Stroke risk was almost twice as high for women with triglyceride levels above 200 mg/dL compared to those with levels below 150 mg/dL. Increased risk was also associated with an elevated ratio of total cholesterol: high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL), or decreased HDL.

Previous studies have suggested an increased risk of ischemic stroke in men with a high total cholesterol: HDL ratio, and this study extends these findings to women. Stroke is the third leading cause of death in the United States, accounting for more than 150,000 deaths per year.
