Table 3 Linear association (coefficient β and 95 % CI) of dietary intakes of L-arginine with changes of lipids and blood pressure during follow-up

From: Dietary L-arginine intake and the incidence of coronary heart disease: Tehran lipid and glucose study

  Total L-arginine intakes
  Total L-arginine Animal-derived L-arginine Plant-derived L-arginine
Systolic blood pressure −0.09 (−2.23, 2.05) 1.48 (−0.05, 3.51) −1.89 (−4.17, −0.03)
Diastolic blood pressure −0.55 (−2.31, 1.21) 1.80 (0.14, 3.46) −2.78 (−4.61, −0.92)
Serum triglycerides 0.42 (−3.66, 4.50) 2.11 (−0.71, 5.95) −2.11 (−6.32, 2.14)
HDL-C 1.62 (−0.08, 3.33) 1.75 (−0.15, 3.37) −0.38 (−2.16, 1.38)
TG/HDL ratio −0.03 (−4.16, 4.09) 1.29 (−2.50, 5.18) −1.60 (−5.88, 2.68)
  1. Linear regression models were used with adjustment of age, sex, energy and protein intakes
