p<0.001: significant in comparison to D-LDL-C. TC: total cholesterol; TG: triglycerides; HDL-C: high-density lipoprotein cholesterol; LDL-C: low-density lipoprotein cholesterol; D-LDL-C: directly measured LDL-C; FLDL-C LDL-C calculated by Friedewald’s formula; N-LDL-C, LDL-C calculated by Martin’s formula; A-LDL-C, LDL-C calculated by Anandaraja’s formula; M-LDL-C, LDL-C calculated by modified formula.
