Values of total cholesterol (TC), high-density lipoprotein (HDL) , low-density lipoprotein (LDL), and triglycerides (TGs) were noted. Results: There exists an association between increasing stage of MGD and age and increasing values of TC,LDL,TGs of lipid profile.Conclusions: Higher stages of MGD are associated with increased age.
