Lipid and lipoprotein ratios as risk factors of atherosclerosis in patients with chronic renal insufficiency (CRI)

Int Urol Nephrol. 1999;31(2):263-7. doi: 10.1023/a:1007145329360.

Abstract

The serum levels of lipids, apolipoproteins and lipoprotein ratios in 19 healthy persons and 20 patients with uraemia not dialyzed were determined. Based on creatinine level the patients were divided into two groups: L (serum creatinine 2-5 mg/dl) and H (serum creatinine 5-10 mg/dl). Dyslipoproteinaemia in uraemic patients is already manifested in the early stages of the disease through its abnormal apolipoproteins rather than lipid profile and it suggests a high risk of atherosclerosis.
