Table 6 Risk of IHD (%) by TC/HDL-C and non-HDL-C at 5, 10 and 15 years, respectively

From: Total cholesterol/HDL-C ratio versus non-HDL-C as predictors for ischemic heart disease: a 17-year follow-up study of women in southern Sweden

  1. IHD ischemic heart disease, TC/HDL-C total cholesterol/high density lipoprotein cholesterol, non-HDL-C total-cholesterol minus HDL-C
  2. Risks based on full models, adjusted for baseline age, waist hip ratio, smoking, exercise, diabetes mellitus type 2 and blood pressure
  3. p < 0.05 was considered statistically significant
