Table 2 Comparison of plasma concentrations of CT, LDLc, TG and HDLc levels among the groups

From: Biochemical parameters and oxidative stress markers in Tunisian patients with periodontal disease

Groups
Value
Patients Controls P 95%CI
Values
Plasma TC (mmol/l) 4.75 ± 1.10 4.2 ± 0.86 0.02 4.40–4.73
Plasma LDLc (mmol/l) 2.3 ± 0.72 2.08 ± 0.86 0.05 2.30–2.57
Plasma TG (mmol/l) 1.4 ± 0.91 1.1 ± 0.56 0.05 1.19–1.42
Plasma HDLc (mmol/l) 1.3 ± 0.41 1.41 ± 0.43 0.03 1.14–1.28
  1. Patients, n = 80; Controls, n = 50. Normally distributed data are expressed as means±SD, and non normally distributed data are expressed as median (IQR [interquartile range]). CT Cholesterol, LDLc Low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, TG Triglycerides, HDLc High-density lipoprotein cholesterol. The difference is significant compared with the control group (P ≤ 0.05)
