The mean serum triglycerides and VLDL are increased in CKD in both non dialysis and hemodialysis patients when compared to control. The increase is statistically significant (p<0.001). The mean serum HDL cholesterol is significantly decreased in non dialysis and hemodialysis patients in CKD when compared to control (p<0.001). The mean serum total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol is not significantly altered when compared with control
