The mean serum triglycerides and VLDL are significantly decreased in hemodialysis patients when compared with CKD non dialysis patients (p<0.05). The mean serum HDL cholesterol is significantly decreased in hemodialysis patients when compared to non dialysis patients (p<0.001). The mean serum total cholesterol is also significantly raised in non dialysis patients when compared to hemodialysis (p<0.05) however these levels were within normal range. LDL cholesterol does not undergo any significant alteration when compared in both the groups
