Table 4 Baseline clinical parameters in very small LDL particle subgroups with decreased and increased concentration

From: N-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids improve lipoprotein particle size and concentration in Japanese patients with type 2 diabetes and hypertriglyceridemia: a pilot study

Parameter Very small LDL particle concentration  
  Patients with decrease (n = 9) Patients with increase (n = 3) P-value
Age (years) 62.6 ± 11.1 72.0 ± 4.00 0.194
BMI (kg/m2) 28.4 ± 5.34 27.9 ± 6.89 1.000
TC (mg/dL) 176 ± 26.8 178 ± 32.7 1.000
LDL-C (mg/dL) 95.8 ± 26.1 102 ± 30.0 1.000
HDL-C (mg/dL) 44.1 ± 8.12 50.0 ± 12.7 0.350
TG (mg/dL) 195 ± 34.6 154 ± 5.86 0.026
  1. Data represent the means ± standard deviation. P-values represent differences between the two groups. Lipoprotein particle concentrations were measured using high performance liquid chromatography.
