Elevated serum uric acid (UA) is associated with higher risk for cardiovascular disease (CVD). Smaller, denser low density lipoprotein (LDL) and high-density lipoprotein (HDL) particles are the potential risk factors for CVD, while the role and diagnostic value of inflammatory markers are firmly established. This current cross-sectional study investigates interrelationships between UA, high sensitivity C-reactive protein (hsCRP) and fibrinogen concentrations with LDL and HDL sizes in healthy… CONTINUE READING
