The changes of serum lipids and metals' levels in acute myocardial infarction (AMI) patients were studied in comparison to normal subjects. The same parameters were also determined in presence of other diseases in conjunction to AMI such as diabetes and/or hypertension. Results showed that all patients' magnesium, copper, triglycerides and low density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-Ch) levels were significantly higher than the corresponding values of controls. Serum high density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-Ch) levels were lower than values of controls but the decrease was significant in patients with AMI and AMI with diabetes. Also, serum iron significantly decreased in patients with AMI, diabetes and hypertension. In all patients serum zinc and total cholesterol (T-Ch) showed an appreciable increase compared to the control. Our findings emphasize the importance of lipids and metals measurements in AMI patients.

Keywords: Iron, Zinc, Copper, Magnesium.
