Non-linear relationship between triglyceride/high-density lipoprotein cholesterol ratio and chronic kidney disease in US adults: a National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey investigation

2019-11-14

Published data on the association between triglycerides/high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (TG/HDL-C) ratio and chronic kidney disease (CKD) in US populations are limited. The authors examined the association between TG/HDL-C ratio and the prevalence of CKD using US National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) database. This cross-sectional study included 13,780 US adults from NHANES (1999-2006). CKD was defined as an estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR)??0.05). This study suggested saturated effects of TG/HDL-C ratio on the prevalence of CKD among US adults. TG/HDL-C ratio less than 6.68 was positively and independently associated with CKD.
