T705I group TT TI p value
Age (y)56.1 (0.15)55.0 (1.30)0.09
BMI (kg/m2)26.4 (0.15)26.8 (1.20)0.56

  • 1-150 Geometric means and 95% confidence limits as triglycerides were log transformed for the analysis.

  • A one way analysis of variance was used to compare the lipid levels between the I705 carriers and non-carriers. The data were analysed using STATA (Intercooled Stata 5.0).
