Changes in Lipid Profiles of HIV+ Adults over Nine Months at a Harare HIV Clinic: A Longitudinal Study
Changes in frequency of patients with lipid derangements over 9 months.
Change in frequency of patients with elevated TC over nine months
Change in frequency of patients with depressed HDL over 9 months
−34.8%, = 1.000
Change in frequency of patients with elevated LDL over 9 months
+13.1%, = 1.000
Change in frequency of patients with elevated TC/HDL ratio over 9 months
−17.4%, = 0.688
Change in frequency of patients with dyslipidemia over 9 months
−21.7%, = 0.064
−14.2%, < 0.001
Note: SD: standard deviation; level of significance is set at ; from McNemar chi square tests for paired data by time of visit; from McNemar chi square tests for paired data by ART groups; cutoff values according to NCEP guidelines : elevated TC > 5.2 mmol/L, depressed HDL < 1.1 mmol/L, elevated LDL > 3.2 mmol/L, and elevated TC/HDL ratio > 4.5.
