214 Table 6 Serum Testosterone <8 >8 (nmol/L) Non-HDL Cholesterol
The 2013 American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association (ACC/AHA) guidelines do not require fasting for atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease risk estimation; however, they do recommend a fasting lipid panel before statin initiation to calculate LDL cholesterol and for individuals with non-HDL cholesterol
[greater than or equal to] 5.
Pantethine, a derivative of vitamin B5, favorably alters total, LDL and non-HDL cholesterol
in low to moderate cardiovascular risk subjects eligible for statin therapy: a triple-blinded placebo and diet-controlled investigation.
(NHDL-C) is calculated from lipid profile by subtracting HDL-C from total cholesterol.
The non-HDL cholesterol
represent an estimate of the cholesterol concentration in the atherogenic lipoproteins (VLDL and LDL).
was obtained by subtracting HDL cholesterol from total cholesterol.
Leary and her co-authors evaluated the accuracy of cardiovascular disease risk score classification by direct LDL cholesterol, calculated LDL cholesterol, and non-HDL cholesterol
compared to classification by reference measurement procedures performed at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Olanzapine and quetiapine significantly worsened total cholesterol, triglyceride, non-HDL cholesterol
, and other lipid measures, while risperidone significantly raised triglycerides.
But for all other lipid parameters--LDL, non-HDL cholesterol
, apolipoprotein B, and triglycerides--there were no significant differences among the three contraceptive formulations.
Model 3 considered age, gender, race or ethnicity, smoking, injection drug use, hepatitis C, HDL cholesterol, and non-HDL cholesterol
According to the results of paired t test, there was a significant rise in total cholesterol and non-HDL cholesterol
levels; there was also a significant reduction in HDL-cholesterol fractions, and the reduction of triglycerides was not significant.
, apolipoproteins A-I and B100, standard lipid measures, lipid ratios, and CRP as risk factors for cardiovascular disease in women.
