Table 2 LDL-cholesterol concentrations calculated according to various formulas in the total cohort, as well as in MetSyn and nonMetSyn subjects

From: LDL cholesterol estimation in patients with the metabolic syndrome

LDL-F 145 ± 35 149 ± 38 138 ± 28 0.04
LDL-P 129 ± 29* 132 ± 32* 126 ± 26** NS
LDL-H 136 ± 33** 140 ± 36 130 ± 27 0.04

  2. LDL: low-density lipoprotein, MetSyn: metabolic syndrome, LDL-F: LDL-cholesterol by Friedewald, LDL-P: LDL-cholesterol by Planella, LDL-H: LDL-cholesterol by Hattori, LDL-A: LDL-cholesterol by AMORIS, LDL-W: LDL-cholesterol by Wagner, LDL-L: LDL-cholesterol by the Lipoprint LDL system. One-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) followed by Least Significance Difference (LSD) for paired comparisons *p < 0.001, **p ≤ 0.01 compared to LDL-F.
