ABSTRACT
Serum lipids of overnight fasting and of three-hour postprandial blood were compared for 635 Anglo- and 459 Spanish-American men, ages 20 through 79 years. More than one-third of the test population were institutionalized in a state hospital for mental or geriatric patients. In the male Spanish-American population in an environment typical for the ethnic group, serum fatty acids, triglycerides and cholesterol peak early in life, ten to thirty years before the corresponding peaks in Anglo-American men. Peak concentrations are not significantly different in normal Spanish- and Anglo-Americans, but concentrations are greater in Anglos during the fifties and sixties when their incidence of cardiovascular disease is highest. Postprandial means for fatty acids and triglycerides in normal men tend to parallel fasting curves at levels 20 to 40% higher for fatty acids and 60 to 100% higher for triglycerides. In institutionalized mental and geriatric patients, maximum serum lipid values in Spanish- and Anglo-American men occur in the same or contiguous decades, not showing the normal contrasts with age or ethnic division. Except for phospholipids, all lipid concentrations are lower in institutionalized than normal men for all decades other than in the twenties. The low serum lipid concentrations in Spanish men during the later decades of life, as well as the low incidence of cardiovascular deaths in Spanish males, appear to relate the lower cardiovascular death rate in New Mexico in part to the ethnic profile.
