From: CD36 haplotypes are associated with lipid profile in normal-weight subjects

Height (cm) 156 (152–159) 169 (166–173) 0.001
BMI (kg/m2) 22 (20–23) 22 (20–23) 0.411

  1. SBP, Systolic blood pressure; DBP, Diastolic blood pressure; TC, Total cholesterol; HDL-C, High-density lipoprotein cholesterol; LDL-C, Low-density lipoprotein cholesterol; oxLDL, Oxidized low-density lipoprotein; TG, Triglyceride. The values were presented as median (percentile 25-75th). The difference between genders was determined by the Wilcoxon-Mann–Whitney test. Data of hypertension were presented in (n) and the percentages; the difference between genders was determined by chi-square test.
