Background: Hypercholesterolaemia increases the risk of atherosclerosis, subsequently IHD. Herbal-homeopathic medicines are unexplored as lipid-lowering agents. This study presents safety and efficacy outcomes of homeopathic Gautteria gaumeri Q, in treatment of hypercholesterolaemia.

Methods: This was a homoeopathic registry in real world population. A group of 29 subjects with mild to moderate hypercholesterolaemia with or without statin therapy were included in the study at a single centre in Udaipur, India. All subjects were given 10-15 drops of Gautteria gaumeri Q thrice in a day for 2 months and were followed fortnightly.

Results: The sample demographics were similar to typical Indian demographics (age 43±14 years, height 166.5cm, BMI 21kg/m2) having age 49±6 years, gender ratio 0.81 with 13 (45%) males and 16 (55%) females, height 157.07±26.18 cms and weight 71.5±11.78 Kg. The comorbidity included diabetes (44.83%), hypertension (68.97%), current smoking (44.83%) and CAD (31.03%). Thirteen (44.83%) subjects were taking statins for minimum 6 months. At baseline, mean TC, HDL, LDL, VLDL cholesterols and triglycerides were 223±25.8, 41.45±4.82, 150.9±25.97, 30.66±6.38 and 223±34.81 respectively. TC: HDL and LDL: HDL ratios were 5.44±0.82 and 3.69±0.77 respectively. At 2 months, TC reduced by 22.21 (9.96%), triglycerides, LDL and VLDL cholesterol demonstrated 39.55 (17.70%), 24.66 (16.34%) and 3.35 (10.91%) reduction respectively. HDL increased by 5.84 (14.09%). Proportion of population at risk defined as TC >200, LDL >120, VLDL >30, HDL <30 and triglycerides >200 was reduced by 17.24%, 31.04%, 13.79%, 100% and 31.03% respectively. (Baseline n=13). There were no ADRs in the study. Gauttaria gaumeri was proved to be efficacious in treatment of hypercholesterolaemia.
