  1. Note. LDL-C = calculated low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, HDL-C = calculated high-density lipoprotein cholesterol, Non-HDL-C cholesterol computed as (total cholesterol – HDL-C), sLDL-P = small low-density lipoprotein number, LDL-P = low-density lipoprotein number, LDL size = low-density lipoprotein size; HDL-P (total) = total high-density lipoprotein number
  2. aAnalysis omits one participant who was missing a baseline standard lipid panel and one participant who did not provide a standard lipid panel at 6 months (n = 2 omitted)
  3. bAnalysis omits participant who provided a non-fasting sample at baseline (n = 1 omitted). The pattern and statistical significance of results remains if we retain the non-fasted participant
  4. t-test p-value is two-sided. LB = Lower bound, UB=Upper bound
