This study aimed to observe the change in nonhigh-density lipoprotein cholesterol (non-HDL-C) levels and analyzed its related factors in adults with prediabetes (impaired fasting glucose and/or impaired glucose tolerance).This case-controlled study included 56 adults with normal glucose tolerance (NGT) and 74 adults with prediabetes. The cases and controls were age and gender-matched. Anthropometric measurements including height, weight, waist circumference, and blood pressure were performed. All patients underwent an oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) after 8 hours of fasting, and the levels of glucose, insulin, lipids, and uric acid were measured.The levels of non-HDL-C (3.63 ± 0.92 vs 3.27 ± 1.00 mmol/L) were significantly higher in prediabetic subjects than in NGT subjects (P < .05). Non-HDL-C positively correlated with HOMA-IR (r = 0.253, P = .004), triglyceride (r = 0.204, P = .020), and uric acid (r = 0.487, P = .000). After multivariate analysis, uric acid continued to be significantly associated with non-HDL-C (β = 0.006, P = .000).Non-HDL-C is elevated in adults with prediabetes. A relationship between non-HDL-C and uric acid was observed.
