Table 3 Sensitivity and specificity of standard lipid panel measures to identify individuals at greater or lesser risk for worsened sLDL-P

From: Lipid findings from the Diabetes Education to Lower Insulin, Sugars, and Hunger (DELISH) Study

Lipid measure (5% Δ)≥5% Δ sLDL-P
Sensitivity % [TP/(TP + FN)]; [95% CI]
<5% Δ sLDL-P
Specificity % [(TN/(TN + FP)]; [95% CI]
LDL-C58.3% (7/12); [27.7, 84.8]45.0% (18/40); [29.3, 61.5]
Triglyceride/HDL-C Ratio6/12 (50.0%); [21.1, 78.9]85.0% (34/40); [70.2, 94.3]
Non-HDL-C Cholesterol58.3% (7/12); [27.7, 84.8]60.0% (24/40); [43.3, 75.1]
