Abstract

There is a growing evidence demonstrating an association between dyslipidemia and progression of chronic kidney disease (CKD), but results on the effects of high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) on renal outcome have been conflicting. In this study, the relationship between HDL-C variability and the risk for progression to end-stage renal disease (ESRD) was investigated.
