The incidence of Atheroesclerosis in kidney transplanted patients and its relationship to elevation of lipids and lipoproteins of plasma has been investigated. In this study the serum level of lipids (cholesterol, triglyceride and total lipid), lipoproteins [Very Low Density Lipoprotein (VLDL), Low Density Lipoprotein-Cholesterol (LDL-C), High Density Lipoprotein-Cholesterol (HDL-C) and ratio of HDL-C/LDL-C)] and fasting blood sugar in 74 kidney transplanted patients (53 males and 21 females) in the range of 15-69 years and 74 control persons (53 males and 21 females) in the range of 13-70 years were measured, statistically analyzed and compared with each other. Comparison of serum lipid and lipoprotein levels in males and females and in the control group reveals remarkable difference in all parameters except for HDL-C and HDL-C/LDL-C in males. Average of serum fasting blood sugar in studied patients compared to that of the control group did not reveal a statistically important difference (p>0.1). Through the correlation co-effective test between age, weight and duration of kidney transplanted with lipids, lipoproteins and fasting blood sugar levels only revealed direct and remarkable relationship between weight and triglycerides (p<0.05, r=0.29).

Keywords: Renal transplantation recipients, lipid, lipoprotein level.
