Abstract

Background: Nephrolithiasis is a worldwide disease that affects almost all ethnicities and populations. The present study was conducted to assessed increased risk of incident kidney stone formation in dyslipidemia.
Materials & Methods: 82 cases of nephrolithiasis and 50 healthy controls of both genders were enrolled. Parameters such as height, weight, and blood pressure and BMI was recorded. About 5 mL fasting venous blood sample was drawn for measurement of total cholesterol (TC), triglycerides (TG), high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C), and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C).
Results: Group I had 48 males and 34 females and group II had 27 males and 23 females. The mean TC level (mg/dl) in group I was 171.3 and in group II was 184.2, TG was 132.5 and 115.6, HDL- C was 43.1 and 54.9 and LDL- C was 94.1 and 102.8 in group I and II respectively. Hypercholesterolemia was common in group II (29%) than group I (22%), hypertriglyceridemia was common in group I (30%) than group II (23%), low HDL-cholesterolemiamia was common in group I (54%) than group II (14%) and high LDL-cholesterolemia was more common in group II (16%) than group I (8%).
Conclusion: Dyslipidemia was associated with an increased risk of stone disease.
