Background-Dyslipidemia is a known risk factor for coronary disease, but its role in heart failure (HF) development is less well-defined. Methods and Results-We included 5688 participants, aged 45 to 84 years, without clinical cardiovascular disease, and not receiving lipid-lowering medications at baseline, from the Multiethnic Study of Atherosclerosis.

We observed significant interactions between triglyceride and diabetes mellitus (Pinteraction
