Diabetic dyslipidemia is a modifiable risk factor of cardiovascular disease, characterized by elevated triglycerides, presence of small dense LDL-C particles and decreased HDL-C. Non-HDL-C is considered to be a measure of apo B containing atherogenic lipoproteins and a better predictor of CVD in type 2 DM. The aim of this study is to compare Non-HDL-C and Atherogenic Index of Plasma (AIP) in 120 type 2 diabetic subjects and correlate with hs-CRP, a low grade systemic inflammatory marker to assess the cardiovascular risk.

On comparison, Non-HDL-C an easily calculated parameter than AIP showed a statistically significant value and correlated more significantly with hs-CRP in hypertriglyceridemic type 2 diabetic subjects. Thus, Non-HDL-C is considered to be a simple, cost-effective calculated tool and a better representative of triglyceride rich lipoprotein that can assess diabetic dyslipidemia and considered to be a better predictor of adverse cardiovascular events.

Keywords: Non-HDL-C, Atherogenic Index of Plasma (AIP), high sensitive - C Reactive protein.
