Conclusion
- The atherogenic and metabolic impact of non-HDL cholesterol versus other lipid sub-components among non-diabetic and diabetic Saudis

In summary, elevated non-HDL-cholesterol has the highest risk of CHD among non-diabetics while elevated total cholesterol has the highest risk among the diabetics. Hypertriglyceridemia is the common significant contributor for the development of CHD, DM and metabolic syndrome. This study supports the use of non-HDL cholesterol as the more practical and reliable target of lipid lowering therapy among the Saudi population.
