    With increasing prevalence of Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD), CKD related cardiovascular diseases (CVD), end stage renal disease (ESRD) and the consequent financial burden of renal replacement therapy (RRT), the importance of CKD and its risk factors needs to be considered. Hence, lipid profile was studied in maintenance haemodialysis (MHD) subjects Aims and objective: The present study was conducted in the Department of General Medicine in Maharishi Markandeshwar Medical College and Hospital, Kumarhatti, Solan. The objectives of the present study are: 1. To study the prevalence of dyslipidaemia, its correlation with kidney function in patients on maintenance haemodialysis and identify the lipid pattern in patients on maintenance haemodialysis. 2. To study the ECG changes in patient on maintenance haemodialysis. Method: The patients were selected from those who got admitted to department of General Medicine. After obtaining an informed and written consent, they were included in this study group and were subjected to lipid profile, rft and ecg. Results: There is significant difference of lipid profile among CKD patients on maintenance haemodialysis. It is already known that dyslipidaemia is a risk factor for chronic kidney disease. And our study also shows a significant rise in triglyceride levels and fall in HDL levels among patients on maintenance haemodialysis
