From: Adolescent lipoprotein classifications according to National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) vs. National Cholesterol Education Program (NCEP) for predicting abnormal lipid levels in adulthood in a Middle East population

  1. Odds ratios were adjusted for sex, baseline age and change in body mass index rank between adolescents and adulthood. CI: confidence interval; NCEP: The National Cholesterol Education program; NHANES: National Health and Nutrition Education Survey; TC: total cholesterol; LDL-C: low density lipoprotein cholesterol; HDL-C: high density lipoprotein cholesterol; TG: triglycerides.
