The present study was undertaken to investigate the changes in the serum lipids among the diseases are the leading cause of death globally. The underlying mechanisms vary depending fishing community of elderly people. A sample of 100 (50 males and 50 females) in the age group of 51-70 years were selected randomly. The lipid profiles assessed for fishermen subjects included estimation of serum total cholesterol (TC), High Density Lipo Protein – Cholesterol (HDCL-C) and triglycerides (TG). The other parameters were calculated based on the estimated values. Results of the study reveal that the lipid profiles of the fishermen subjects studies was normal. All the parameters were showed the normal levels. Very few subjects showed higher values which indicate risk.
