Abstract
Aim: The present study aimed to determine the reference range values for four lipid parameters associated with chronic diseases that were routinely examined in our laboratory in elderly individuals aged ≥65 years.

Materials and Methods: We determined the reference ranges for TC, HDL -C, LDL -C, and TG in individuals aged ≥65 years using samples from 268 individuals, including 139 women and 129 men, between June 20th, 2019, and August 8th, 2020, who met the inclusion criteria.

Results: The average age of the individuals included in the study was 74.8 years. The average age of the men was 74.7 years, and the average age of the women was 74.9 years. The reference range values of lipids (mg/dL) for the entire group (male-female), male, and female individuals, respectively, were as follows: TC: 116–295 mg/dL,105–280 mg/dL, and 141–287 mg/dL; HDL-C:30–79 mg/dL, 28–65 mg/dL, and 31–77 mg/dL; LDL-C: 59–200 mg/dL, 50–193 mg/dL, and 76–195 mg/dL; and TG: 45–298 mg/dL, 45–272 mg/dL, and 53–242 mg/dL.

Conclusion: As with children, determining reference range values specific to elderly individuals is important for an accurate and appropriate assessment of their health status.
