Discordance of Non-HDL and Directly Measured LDL Cholesterol: Which Lipid Measure is Preferred When Calculated LDL Is Inaccurate?

Table 1

Baseline characteristics.

Age (years)60
Weight (kg)*92
Height (cm)*176
Male38 (100%)
Hypertension25 (66%)
Diabetes mellitus9 (24%)
Low density lipoprotein (mg/dL)—calculated*141

Total cholesterol (mg/dL)216
HDL (mg/dL)49
Non-HDL (mg/dL)160
“Adjusted” non-HDL (mg/dL)130
Triglycerides (mg/dL)130

One patient had nonfasting lipids; his baseline LDL measurements, triglycerides, HDL, and “adjusted” non-HDL were therefore not included. Two patients did not have an assessment of height and weight.
