cholesterol (HDL-C) are usually decreased. However, enough data assessing this relationship
is scarce in different literature commenting on kidney disease progression in patients having
chronic kidney disease
Aim: The present study was conducted to assess the correlation between the progression of
chronic kidney disease and serum high-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels to provide an
alternative to urinary albumin-creatinine ratio (UACR) measurement.
Methods:The present study assessed the relationship between the progression of chronic
kidney disease and serum high-density lipoprotein cholesterol levels in 542 subjects with
diagnosed chronic kidney disease. The primary and secondary outcomes assessed were a 50%
reduction in the estimated GFR (Glomerular Filtration Rate) from the baseline values or the
onset of end-stage renal disease (ESRD). The secondary outcomes assessed were the
development of end-stage renal disease.
