Data are presented as mean (standard deviation);

C - cholesterol; LDL - low density lipoprotein; HDL - high density lipoprotein; Atherogenic Index – Total cholesterol:HDL cholesterol; TAG – triacylglycerols; hsCRP- high sensitivity C-reactive protein; VLDL - very low density lipoprotein; IDL - intermediate density lipoprotein,

aTo change to mmol/l, multiply the value with 0.02586.

P-value derived with mixed model.
