Non-High-Density Lipoprotein Cholesterol and Its Correlation With Anthropometric Markers of Cardiovascular Risk in Hemodialysis
Journal of Renal Nutrition, 03/05/2012De Oliveira CMC et al.
This study detected a positive and significant correlation between Non–high–density lipoprotein cholesterol (non–HDL–c), but not low–density lipoprotein cholesterol, and the anthropometric cardiovascular risk indexes. The authors could suggest that non–HDL–c can be used as a cardiovascular risk factor indicator among dialysis patients.
