Figure 2: Funnel plot for intervention minus control group changes in non-HDL-C across all results. The -axis represents changes in non-HDL-C in mg/dL, while the -axis represents the standard error of the changes in non-HDL-C in mg/dL. The middle of the hollow diamond represents the original overall mean difference, while the left and right extremes of the diamond represent the corresponding 95% confidence intervals based on a random-effects model. The middle of the black solid diamond represents the mean difference in non-HDL-C, adjusted for small-study effects, while the left and right extremes of the diamond represent the corresponding 95% confidence intervals based on a random-effects model. As can be seen by the matching diamonds, no adjustment (imputation) was necessary. To convert mg/dL to mmol, divide by 38.67.
