|Table 2: Changes in serum noncholesterol sterols and squalene during the intervention.|
|Values shown are means ± SEM. |
aGroup by time interaction analysed with analysis of variance for repeated measurements (GLM). If the baseline differed between groups (), it was taken into account as covariance.
bGroup by time interaction (gender and BMI as covariance).
c denotes a significant difference at the baseline between the groups.
d denotes a significant difference from the baseline within the groups.
e denotes a significant difference at the 12 months between the groups.
f denotes a significant change over time (f) (gender and BMI as covariance).
