Low plasma cholesterol levels in suicidal males: a gender- and body mass index-matched case-control study of suicide attempters and nonattempters.
Prog Neuropsychopharmacol Biol Psychiatry. 2007 May 09; 31(4):901-5.PN

Abstract

Findings from animal and human studies suggest an association between low cholesterol levels and suicidal behaviors. The purpose of this case-control study was to test whether cholesterol levels in suicide attempters are lower than in controls without suicide attempt history matched by gender, age, and body mass index (BMI). Suicide attempters (n=177: 68 men and 109 women) and controls (177 blood donors) were assessed. Serum cholesterol levels were significantly lower in suicide attempters than in controls. After gender stratification, the difference remained significant in men, but not in women.
