Renal dysfunction is associated with increased cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. The aim of this cross-sectional study was to investigate the relationship between the glomerular filtration marker cystatin C and other cardiovascular risk markers and morbidity in elderly males. Cystatin C was measured in a group of 77-year-old males (n=792) and compared cystatin C with other known risk markers for cardiovascular disease. Cystatin C values were significantly increased in individuals with diabetes (p=0.05) and cardiovascular diseases (p<0.0001). There were significant correlations between cystatin C values and body mass index, HbA1c, insulin, triglycerides and hsCRP.
