Physical characteristics and blood glucose and serum lipid concentrations were analysed in 196 patients with electively diagnosed cholelithiasis and 187 age and sex matched controls. A logistic regression analysis showed that women with cholelithiasis had more total body fat and were shorter than the female controls. There were no differences in anthropometric measurements between the men with gallstones and their controls. Patients of both sexes, however, had increased serum triglyceride and decreased serum cholesterol concentrations compared with control subjects.
