Lipid accumulation product (LAP) is a novel and effective index of visceral adiposity distribution based on waist circumference and triglycerides concentration. Few studies investigated the relationship between LAP and eGFR. We aimed to explore whether LAP was associated with declined renal function (eGFR < 60 mL/min/1.73m(2)), and also whether it exhibited obvious superiority in predicting kidney impairment compared with other obesity indices. METHODS
In this cross-sectional study, 10,012 subjects were recruited from 22 sites in East China. LAP was calculated with the following formula: (WC-65) x TG for males, (WC-58) x TG for females.
4.7% participants with declined renal function had a higher LAP quartile. LAP was strongly associated with eGFR level (Beta: -0.073, P < 0.001) and declined renal function (P < 0.001) even after adjustment for age, sex, smoking, drinking, diabetes and hypertension. The risk of renal dysfunction increased 2.32-fold for the highest quartile LAP relative to the lowest quartile (OR: 2.32, 95%CI:1.52-3.53, P < 0.001). LAP exerted the largest area under the curve among different obesity indices (AUC ROC:0.644, 95%CI: 0.618-0.670, P < 0.001). CONCLUSIONS
Our findings showed that LAP strongly associated with declined renal function and could be one of markers for predicting the risk of renal dysfunction in the general Chinese population.
