Table 2 Lifestyle features of the participants, categorized by the median (cutoff: 69.4 U/L) of ox-LDL concentrations*

From: Relationship of oxidized low density lipoprotein with lipid profile and oxidative stress markers in healthy young adults: a translational study

Lifestyle features Low ox-LDL
<69.4 U/L
(n = 80)
High ox-LDL
≥ 69.4 U/L
(n = 80)
P- value
Vitamin supplement use (%) 6.2 6.2 0.721
Smokers (%) 9.6 13.4 0.105
Smoking (cigarettes/d) 1.3 ± 4.9 1.6 ± 4.9 0.318
Self-reported PA practice (%) 72.6 70.1 0.116
MET (h/wk) 116 ± 105 135 ± 116 0.324
  1. Ox-LDL, oxidized low density lipoprotein; PA, physical activity; MET, activity metabolic equivalent
  2. *Data are mean ± SD or frequencies.
  3. P-value from χ2test and Mann-Whitney U test for dichotomous and continuous variables, respectively.
  4. n = 73 and n = 67, for low and high ox-LDL, respectively.
