Measurement of lipid profile in adults with CKD 1-5: We recommend measuring the lipid profile (T cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, HDL cholesterol and triglycerides) in all adults with newly diagnosed CKD 1-5 (including patients in renal replacement therapy). Monitoring of lipid profile in adults with CKD 1-5: In many cases it is not necessary to regularly monitor the lipid profile. Patients ≥ 50 years with CKD 1-5 ND: We recommend that these patients be treated with a statin (CKD 1-2, evidence level B), and in CKD patients in stages 3-5 ND that a statin or the combination statin/ezetimibe be used (evidence level A). Patients aged 18-49 years with CKD 1-5 ND: We suggest treating these patients with a statin if they also have one or more of the following conditions (evidence level A): known CVD, DM, Prior ischaemic stroke, Estimated 10-year risk of coronary death or non-fatal AMI > 10 % or risk of fatal cardiovascular disease > 5% (SCORE). Patients with CKD stage 5D: We suggest that these patients not be given a statin or started on statin/ezetimibe treatment (evidence level A). Patients who start dialysis and are already being treated with a statin or statin/ezetimibe: We suggest that treatment be continued (evidence level C). Adult kidney transplanted patients: We suggest that these patients be treated with a statin (evidence level B).
