Non-high-density lipoprotein non-HDL cholesterol total cholesterol minus high-density lipoprotein HDL cholesterol is considered a better predictor of coronary heart disease CHD risk than low-density lipoprotein LDL cholesterol. The Slovak Roma population have approximately 2.5-fold higher premature CHD mortality than the overall population. It is agreed that detection of dyslipidemia and prevention of atherosclerosis by controlling CHD risk factors should begin in childhood. However, only limited population-based data are available for non-HDL cholesterol in children. Hence the aim of the present cross-sectional study has been to determine population frequency data and correlations of non-HDL cholesterol in 788 Roma and Caucasian children 42% Roma, 51% male, aged 7–17, from Central Slovakia, as part of the Slovak Lipid Community Study. Roma children, compared to Caucasians, had higher serum levels of total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol and HDL cholesterol, were less physically active, smoked more, and had lower body mass index and blood pressure all at p
