Introduction:Hyperlipidemia is one of the major risk factors of cardiovascular diseases. This study was done to assess lipid profiles according to sex and place of residence in the urban and rural area of Arak for controlling cardiovascular diseases. Materials and Methods:This descriptive study is the first phase of healthy heart program which was done in Arak. Sampling was randomized cluster. A questionnaire was used to collect demographic data and paraclinical test results (total cholesterol, LDL-c, HDL-c ,and Triglyceride). Data was analyzed using T-student, Kolmogorov-Smirnov, Mann-Whitney and Chi-square tests. Results: Of 4303 individuals over 30 years, 51.6% were female. Total cholesterol, LDL-c and HDL-c disturbances were more in female (p<0.05) but there was not a sigmifiant difference between male and female in triglyceride disturbance. The increase in serum lipids was signfiantly different in urban and rural areas, in which total cholesterol and LDL-c disturbances were more in rural and triglyceride disturbance was more in urban areas (p<0.0001). Conclusion: High prevalence of dyslipidemia in the studied region can be related to unhealthy life style, nutrition and inadequate physical activity, so dyslipidemia and cadiovascular diseases could be decreased by changing lifestyle.
