  1. HDL, high-density lipoprotein; LDL, low-density lipoprotein; eGFR, estimated glomerular filtration rate. Data presented are mean ± standard deviation. Data for triglycerides and triglycerides/HDL cholesterol ratio were skewed and were presented as median (interquartile range). Data for triglycerides and triglycerides/HDL cholesterol ratio were log-transformed for analysis. * Student's t-test or χ2 test.
