Table 2 Lipids and insulin levels of the RA women and groups of total physical activity

From: Low level of physical activity in women with rheumatoid arthritis is associated with cardiovascular risk factors but not with body fat mass - a cross sectional study

  MET-hours 1st quartile MET-hours 4th quartile p-value
Cholesterol, mmol/L 4.9 (4.6-5.7) 5.7 (4.6-6.3) 0.12
HDL, mmol/L 1.6 (1.4-2.1) 2.1 (1.7-2.5) 0.004
LDL, mmol/L 2.7 (2.2-3.2) 2.9 (2.4-3.4) 0.62
oxLDL, U/L 57.0 (45.4-68.6) 61.9 (48.7-75.1) 0.60
Apo A1, g/L 1.44 (1.32-1.51) 1.78 (1.59-1.9) 0.005
Apo B, g/L 0.91 (0.76-0.98) 0.86 (0.70-1.01 0.61
ApoB/Apo A1, g/L 0.61 (0.50-0.71) 0.51 (0.42-0.61) 0.15
Anti-PC, U/mL 36.8 (20.7-45.0) 45.3 (39.3-70.1) 0.016
Insulin, pmol/L 43.0 (27.1-112.1) 31.4 (22.9-47.4) 0.05
  1. Data is presented as median (inter-quartile range), LDL = low-density
  2. lipoprotein, HDL = high-density lipoprotein, Apo A1 = apolipoprotein A1,
  3. apoB = apolipoprotein B, OxLDL= oxidized low-density lipoprotein,
  4. anti-PC = antibodies against phosphorylcholine.
