The Triglyceride Paradox in Stroke Survivors: A Prospective Study

Table 5

Association between triglyceride# and death stratified by statin use and gender.

Death ≤ 3 monthsAlive at 3 months value

Triglyceride (with no prior statin use)1.00 (0.67 to 1.47)1.31 (0.93 to 1.78)0.0345*
Triglyceride (with prior statin use)1.24 (0.63 to 1.78)1.55 (1.15 to 2.28)0.0221*
Triglycerides in males1.00 (0.63 to 1.31)1.39 (1.00 to 1.94)0.0023*
Triglycerides in females1.29 (0.86 to 1.75)1.41 (1.00 to 2.03)0.3405

Log of triglyceride was used to test the associations as it had a nonnormal distribution.
