The plasma levels of NO, VEGF, and GM-CSF. (a) The plasma levels of NO in normotriglyceridemic and hypertriglyceridemic men were statically lower than those in the female groups (). In the male groups, the level of NO was decreased in hypertriglyceridemic subjects than that in normotriglyceridemic subjects (). The plasma levels of NO between normotriglyceridemic and hypertriglyceridemic premenopausal female groups displayed no significant difference (). (b) and (c) The plasma level of VEGF and GM-CSF had no statistical difference between the four groups.
