Non-HDL cholesterol: non-high-density lipoprotein cholesterol; MA: Mexican American; OH: other Hispanic; BNH: Black, non-Hispanic; wt: weight.
Model 1 was adjusted for gender and age. Model 2 included body mass index, health insurance, education, currently smoking, and taking cholesterol-lowering medication(s) along with the adjustments of Model 1. White non-Hispanic (WNH) is the reference group for race/ethnicity. Significance (P < 0.05) is denoted by (*).
