||Lipid profile of 163 pilots aged 50-55 years: 45% had hyperlipidaemia; 22% isolated hypercholesterolaemia; 9% isolated hypertriglyceridaemia; and 14% mixed hyperlipidaemia - a higher percentage than found in similar studies of other social and occupational categories (miners, hospital workers, administrative workers). Calorie and lipid assessments of the meals offered to pilots indicated a hypercaloric diet with an excessively high percentage of lipids. Emphasis is placed on the importance of reducing the consumption of saturated fats and the need for detailed and individualised information on cardiovascular disease risks and the relevant prophylactic measures.
