  2. aSpearman’s correlation of energy-adjusted dietary intakes (g/d) with circulating 15:0 or 17:0 (% of total fatty acids), partially adjusted for age, sex, total energy intake
  3. b“Low fiber” referring to subsample of patients with energy-adjusted total fiber intake below median intake of total sample and “high fiber” to patients with energy-adjusted total fiber intake at median intake or higher. Median energy-adjusted total fiber intake = 21.2 g/d
