Dyslipidemia is nephrotoxic and can result in the development of chronic kidney disease (CKD). The ratio of triglycerides (TG) to high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) (TG/HDL-C ratio) is well-correlated with insulin resistance and cardiovascular events. The aim of this study is to examine the association between the TG/HDL-C ratio and CKD in Korean adults. This study was retrospectively designed based on the National Health Insurance Service-National Health Screening cohort. Seventy three thousand and fifty-two participants aged between 40 and 79 years old at baseline (2009-2010) were included in the final analyses. The study population was classified into three tertile groups (T1 , T2 , and T3 ) according to the TG/HDL-C ratio by sex. Adjusted hazard ratios (HRs) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs) for CKD were calculated using Cox proportional hazard regression models. The median follow-up duration was 5.9 years. Higher tertile groups of the TG/HDL-C ratio had lower estimated glomerular filtration rates in both sexes. The cumulative incidence of CKD of T1 , T2 , and T3 was 11.89%, 12.90%, and 12.91%, respectively, in men and 10.17%, 10.61%, and 14.87%, respectively, in women (all p values < 0.001). Compared with T1 of the TG/HDL-C ratio, the HRs (95% CIs) of T2 and T3 for CKD were 1.212 (1.118-1.315) and 1.183 (1.087-1.287), respectively, in men and 0.895 (0.806-0.994) and 1.038 (0.937-1.150), respectively, in women after being fully adjusted. Higher TG/HDL-C ratios were positively associated with CKD development in men, while middle levels of TG/HDL ratios reduced the CKD incidence in women.
