  1. All values are presented as means (standard deviation). BMI: body mass index, CHD: coronary heart disease, TC: total cholesterol, HDL: high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, LDL: low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, Apo: apolipoprotein, Lp: lipoprotein, TG0: fasting plasma triglyceride concentration, TG4, TG6, TG8: plasma triglyceride concentration 4,6,8 h after the fat load, respectively, AUC: area under the curve. For TC, HDL and LDL, to convert from mg/dl to mmol/L divide by 38.7 For TG, to convert from mg/dl to mmol/L divide by 88.6
