Table 4 HRV and Lipid metabolism

From: Autonomic nervous system and lipid metabolism: findings in anxious-depressive spectrum and eating disorders

Group HRV correl.HRV-LI correl.HRV-TC correl.HRV-TG correl.HRV-ApoA correl. HRV-ApoB
Depression 36.8 ± 11.1      
Anxiety 35.6 ± 10.7      
Anxious-depressive disorder 33.1 ± 10.2 0.67 p < 0,01 0.75 p < 0,01 -0.57 p < 0,01 -0.94 p < 0,01 0.32 p < 0,01
Eating Disorders 37.1 ± 13.7      
Controls 37.2 ± 15      
  1. Legend: Data regarding Heart rate variability (standard deviation of all normal RR intervals) of every group are reported [mean and standard deviation(±)]. In addition, the values of the correlation (correl.HRV-...) between Heart rate variability and the other variables reported are shown (referring to the whole sample), with the p values. HRV = Heart rate variability; LI = Lipid index; TC = Total cholesterol; TG = Triglycerides; ApoA and ApoB = Apolipoproteins A and B.
