Risk factors for coronary morbidity in renal allograft recipients. In addition to elevated low density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol levels, risk factors known to contribute to coronary morbidity often are present in renal allograft recipients. About 40% of recipients are over 45 years old, and 23% have diabetes. Smoking, hypertension, and hyperlipidemia are among the risk factors most amenable to long-term modification. (For guidelines in instituting lipid-lowering therapy see Figure 13-14 [24].)
