From August 1, 2013 to November 31, 2017, a total of 349 consecutive patients were recruited from a single PD center of Wuhan No. 1 Hospital. All adult patients with end-stage renal disease who initiated continuous ambulatory PD at our hospital and underwent PD for least for 3 months, excluded those who had been treated with hemodialysis or who received kidney transplantation, were included in this study. After exclusion of those who did not have serum triglyceride measurements during the first 6 months of PD initiation, we further excluded those who attended other PD centers during the follow-up. Finally, 291 patients were enrolled in this study (Fig. (Fig.1).1). The most common primary renal disease was chronic glomerulonephritis (41.6%), followed by hypertension (18.2%), diabetic nephropathy (16.5%), and reflux nephropathy (6.5%).
