INTRODUCTION Lipid abnormalities and increase in inflammatory markers are common among patients with End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) and it tends to persist/worsen even after initiating Intermittent Haemodialysis (IHD). The cardiovascular mortality and morbidity remains significantly high in this population. AIM The present study was carried out to assess the pattern of lipid abnormality in our population and to find its association with inflammatory markers. MATERIALS AND METHODS It was a… CONTINUE READING
