  1. hsCRP, high sensitivity C-reactive protein; HDL, high-density lipoprotein; LDL, low-density lipoprotein; HMW. High molecular weight. Data presented are mean ± standard deviation. Data for triglycerides, fasting plasma glucose, immuno-reactive insulin, and hsCRP were skewed and log-transformed for analysis. *r, Pearson's correlation coefficient; β, standard regression coefficient.
