BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Altered levels of atherogenic lipoproteins have been shown to be common in mild kidney dysfunction. This study sought to determine the associations between plasma lipids (including LDL particle distribution) and subclinical atherosclerosis measured by the common carotid intima-media thickness (IMT) across levels of estimated GFR(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the association of chronic kidney disease and coronary artery calcium (CAC) incidence, and the distribution of lipoproteins across categories of kidney function and their association with CAC risk. METHODS AND RESULTS We analyzed data from 2795 participants in the Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis with no CAC (calcium score=0)(More)

It is not known whether these markers are more strongly associated with the risk of coronary heart disease (CHD) in CKD compared to traditionally measured lipids and lipoprotein cholesterol ratios. METHODS We studied the association of lipids and(More)
