The LDL-C can be calculated by the following formula: LDL-C = 8.018 + (0.99 x FF LDL-C). The coefficient of determination correlation (r) for this regression was 0.977, which indicates that the calculated LDL-C levels can be used in RTRs with TG lower than 400 mg/dL. mLDL-C was significantly higher than cLDL-C. We observed that difference between cLDL-C and mLDL-C levels were not affected by serum creatinine levels and usage of CNIs, sirolimus, everolimus, ACEI, and ARB in RTRs.
