High density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) is protective against the development of coronary artery disease (CAD) and microalbuminuria. Overall lipid index can be estimated by non-HDL cholesterol which is a better predictor of cardio vascular disease (CVD) than low density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) alone. Microalbuminuria is an important risk indicator for future development of nephropathy and CAD. Objectives of the current study were to find association between microalbuminuria with HDL-C and non-HDL-C in Saudi patients with diabetes. Both HDL-C and non-HDL-C were significantly associated with microalbuminuria while bivariate correlation of HDL-C was found to be negative. This indicates importance of microalbuminuria screening and considering non-HDL-C as an important indicator of dyslipidemia.
