The aim of the study is to evaluate influence of estrogen deficiency on lipid profile in women of different age. Material and Methods. 189 women with normal body weight: 44 women with premature menopause (aged <40 years), 69 women with early menopause (aged 40-45 years), and 76 women with natural menopause (aged 46-55 years) have been studied. In all women identification of clinical status has been performed during clinical examination. Results. It is shown that increasing age associated with increasing total cholesterol, triglycerides, low-density lipoprotein (LDL), very low density lipoproteins (VLDL) (p<0.05). We have not observed a significant association between age and level of high-density lipoprotein (HDL) (p=0.117). According with increased age, atherogenic index of plasma (AIP) increases from initial -0.17±0.09 (M±o) to 0.09±0.47 (p<0.05) in women with premature menopause, and to 0.14±0.21 (p<0.05) in other women. Final level of AIP was similar between women aged 40-45 years and women aged 46-55 years (p=0.084). Conclusion. Lipid metabolism disorders were assessed in 73.5% of women with estrogen deficiency. According to the age factor the rate of women with normal lipid metabolism decreases (x2=10,165, p=0.026).
