Table 2 Correlations of oxidized lipoprotein(a) with the other variables

From: The association between blood glucose and oxidized lipoprotein(a) in healthy young women

Variable r (P value) β (P value)
Age (years) 0.044 (0.719) - 0.012 (0.931)
Body mass index (kg/m2) - 0.012 (0.919) 0.026 (0.858)
Systolic blood pressure (mmHg) 0.035 (0.774) - 0.082 (0.647)
Diastolic blood pressure (mmHg) 0.139 (0.250) 0.175 (0.333)
LDL-cholesterol (mmol/L) - 0.060 (0.623) - 0.124 (0.381)
HDL-cholesterol (mmol/L) 0.173 (0.153) 0.174 (0.245)
Triglyceride (mmol/L) 0.058 (0.635) 0.147 (0.307)
Glucose (mmol/L) 0.313 (0.008)** 0.269 (0.048)*
Insulin (μU/mL) 0.138 (0.255) 0.049 (0.736)
C-reactive protein (mg/dL) 0.029 (0.810) 0.025 (0.847)
Lipoprotein(a) (mmol/L) 0.565 (< 0.0001)** -
  1. LDL, low-density lipoprotein; HDL, high-density lipoprotein. r: Pearson's correlation coefficient between oxidized Lipoprotein(a) and another variable, β: multiple linear regression coefficient in a multivariate analysis adjusted for age and the following variables: body mass index, systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood pressure, LDL-cholesterol, HDL-cholesterol, triglyceride, glucose, insulin, C-reactive protein. Triglyceride, insulin, lipoprotein(a) and oxidized lipoprotein(a) were calculated after a log-transformation, because of their skewed distributions. Significance level: * P < 0.05, ** P < 0.01.
