TG concentrations across lipoprotein subclasses associate with diabetic kidney disease (DKD) in adults with T1D, but little is known about this relationship in youth with T1D. We evaluated cross-sectional relationships among TG concentrations across lipoprotein subclasses, intraglomerular hemodynamics, and renal oxygen availability (RO2) in youth with T1D. Glomerular filtration rate (GFR) , RO2, renal plasma flow (RPF) , afferent arteriolar resistance (RA) , efferent arteriolar resistance (RE) , intraglomerular pressure (PGLO) , and urine albumin-to-creatinine ratio (UACR) were assessed. Concentrations of lipid constituents from lipoprotein subclasses were quantified via targeted nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (Nightingale Health Ltd., Helsinki, Finland) . Particle sizes for VLDL, LDL, intermediate-density lipoprotein, and HDL were measured. Fifty youth with T1D (age 16.0 ± 3.0 years, 50% female, HbA1c 8.7 ± 1.3%, T1D duration 5.7 ± 2.6 years) and 20 without T1D were included. VLDL-TG concentrations and small LDL-TG correlated with intraglomerular hemodynamic function parameters and RO2. To conclude, strong relationships were found among renal function markers and TG concentrations across lipoprotein subclasses in adolescents with T1D.
