The present study showed no significant correlation between serum Mn and lipid profile parameters in the two groups, although another study has demonstrated that Mn enhanced cholesterol synthesis in the liver and hypocholesterolemia has been reported in a human case of Mn deficiency; (26) however, the cause of this finding is probably due to no significant difference in Mn between the two groups.
