Dyslipoproteinemia and oxidative modification of low-density lipoprotein (oxLDL) contribute to the development of oxidative stress and atherosclerosis in chronic kidney disease (CKD). On the contrary, high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C), especially HDL3-C subtype, has protective effect against oxidative damage. There is limited evidence referring HDL-C subclass levels in patients on dialysis. This study was designed to compare lipid abnormalities and oxLDL levels in hemodialysis (HD… CONTINUE READING
