To examine the question of "accelerated atherogenesis" in ESRD patients, the authors conducted a lipid survey among their hemodialysis and CAPD populations and evaluated data relevant to the lipid and diabetic status of these groups. Interestingly, longer duration of hemodialysis in nondiabetic patients was associated with lower cholesterol but not HDL, which may reflect diminished cardiac risk and mortality in the long-term survivors. Diabetic patients showed lower HDL but no cholesterol change with longer duration on hemodialysis. Type I diabetics showed the highest HDL and lowest risk ratio and a strong inverse correlation between PTH and HDL. This study highlights the role of lipids in the atherogenesis of uremia and serves as a baseline for a longitudinal study.
