In two groups of 90 women (with dislipidemia, arterial hypertension, obesity, metabolic syndrome and other symptoms) at the age of less than 45 years (repro-ductive age group - 43) and more than 45 years ( menopause age group - 50 ) were investigated the lipid profile (lipid spectrum - LDL, HDL, TC, VLDL, Tg), estrogen content and erythrocytes spherulation index and compared with each other. It was proved the existence of reliable correlation between red blood cells dysfunction indi-

cator, spherulation quality, and atherogenic index Tg/HDL highlights; however, the correlation coefficient is 2 times higher in the reproductive age as in menopause. Spherulation quality of red blood cells at low HDL content showed fast growth rate in reproductive-aged women, and was unsensitive to HDL content in menopasal wom-en. It was concluded that age-related lack of estrogens in menopausal women indi-rectly contributes to decrease protection of red blood cells against oxidative damage, reduces their deformability and disturbances the rheological properties. Spherulation quality of red blood cells may be used as a diagnostic marker of severity of athero-sclerosis.
