BACKGROUND Hyperlipidemia may develop early in the course of renal disease, and statin treatment to lower lipid levels in these patients is effective. In addition, it has been suggested that proteinuria may decrease after prolonged periods of statin treatment. In the present study, we set out to evaluate the short-term effect of atorvastatin after only six(More)
BACKGROUND In patients with chronic renal disease, other lipid markers than total cholesterol or low density lipoprotein (LDL)-cholesterol are probably more appropriate to detect a potential lipid-related risk for progression to renal failure. Statin therapy might be protective. METHODS From 1999 to 2001, 177 consecutive patients with renal disease from(More)
Information about lipid abnormalities and the effect of lipid lowering therapy in the early stage of renal disease is limited, while preventive treatment in this stage might be much more beneficial. Lipid profiles and risk factors were assessed in 150 consecutive, non-diabetic patients. Preventive therapy consisted of cholesterol-reduced diet and(More)
PURPOSE OF REVIEW Dyslipidemia is a prevalent condition in patients with chronic renal disease, but is often left untreated. Statin treatment constitutes an effective way to improve lipid abnormalities. This review summarizes present studies on dyslipidemia and its treatment in patients with chronic renal disease. RECENT FINDINGS The specific dyslipidemia(More)
