Comparison of Blood Lipid and Lipoprotein Amount of Wrestlers and Skiers

Feyzullah Koca


In this study it is aimed to compare form blood parameters lipid and lipoprotein values of wrestlers and skiers who have different training levels. In addition, was to examine the risks of cardiovascular diseases for wrestler and skiers. In order to achieve this purpose, 33 male of elite wrestling and ski athletes measured in the study. In this study, Triglyceride (TG), were determined Total Cholesterol (TC), HDL-C and LDL-C levels (With Hitachi 717 autoanalyser). To determine the differences between groups “independent t” tests were performed.

In this study, there were significant differences in plasma LDL-C, HDL-C, and TC values between wrestlers and skiers (p<.05 and p<0,001). There were no significant differences in plasma TG values between wrestlers and skiers (p>.05). In this study, HLC values of skiers were found to be significantly higher than wrestlers (p<0.001). In this study the cardiovascular risk ratios (TC/HDL-C) were found to be 3.39 mg/100cc for wrestlers and 2.80 mg/100cc for skiers. Ratios LDL-C/HDL-C were found 1.76 mg/100cc for wrestlers and 1.45 mg/100cc for skiers.

Conclusion: Although the wrestlers’ training levels were always found to be difference than the skiers, TG values were not found to be different. But the HDL-C, LDL-C, and TC levels of skiers were found better than wrestlers. This results shows that medium and high level of different exercises did cause little differences in blood plasma lipid and lipoprotein levels. Plasma Lipid and lipoprotein values of the wrestler and skiers was accept good.  Wrestling and ski athletes would not be exposed to risk of cardiovascular diseases. Blood parameter values should be examined separately on Cross-country skiers and alpine skiers.
