BACKGROUND/AIM: Cardiovascular morbidity and mortality are markedly increased in chronic renal failure (CRF). The aim of this study was to evaluate lipid parameters and bioindices in patients with different stages of CRF.
METHODS: In 46 hemodialysed (HD), 50 CRF patients with II, III and IV stage of CRF (non-HD) and 48 control subjects triglycerides (TG), total cholesterol (C), HDL-C, urea, creatinine, creatinuria (standard biochemical methods), apolipoprotein (apo) AI, apo B, lipoprotein(a), cystatin C (immunoturbidimetric method) were evaluated, and LDL-C, non-HDL-C, LDLC/HDL-C, non-HDL-/HDL-C, TG/HDL-C, and new bioindices, LTI (lipid tetrad index), logLTI, LPI (lipid pentad index), logLPI, AIP (atherogenic index of plasma), and creatinine clearance were calculated.
RESULTS: There were significant differences in the levels of TG, HDL-C, LDL-C, non-HDL-C, total C and apo A-I between the HD and non-HD patients, and the HD patients and the controls. LTI and LPI were significantly higher in the HD and non-HD patients compared to the controls (p < 0.05), without a good separation by the Box-Whisker plots. The values of TG/HDL-C ratio and AIP were significantly higher in the HD and nonHD-patients compared to the controls (p < 0.05), and significantly higher in the HD compared to non-HD patients (p < 0.05). AIP > 0.11 was found in 71.7% of the HD, 56% of non-HD and 31.3% of the controls.
CONCLUSION: Among lipid parameters and indices, AIP and TG/HDL-C ratio are most suitable for evaluation of lipid disturbances in different stages of CRF. In addition to, non-HDL-/HDL-C, and apoB/A-I ratios, apo A-I, HDL-C and TG are important markers in HD patients. Non-HDL-C is not a suitable marker. LTI and LPI need to be further investigated.
