Uric acid and incident chronic kidney disease in dyslipidemic individuals. Curr Med Res Opin. 2017 Aug 24;:1-17 Authors: Barkas F, Elisaf M, Liberopoulos E, Kalaitzidis R, Liamis G Abstract BACKGROUND: Elevated uric acid (UA) is a recognized risk factor for chronic kidney disease (CKD). We aimed to investigate whether this association exists in dyslipidemic patients receiving multifactorial treatment. METHODS: An observational study conducted in Greece including 1,269 dyslipidemic individuals followed-up in a lipid clinic for ≥3 years. Estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) was calculated by CKD-EPI equation and CKD was defined as ≤60 mL/min/1.73 m(2). We assessed the correlation between UA levels and the CKD risk after adjusting for potential confounding factors, after defining the following UA quartiles: Q1:6 mg/dL. RESULTS: After excluding patients with baseline eGFR
