Concentration of Serum Lipids After 4-wk Consumption of the 2 Diets

Trans-DietSat-DietDifference (95% CI)
Total cholesterol, mmol/L4.97 ±0.945.34±0.95−0.37 (−0.24–−0.50)
HDLs, mmol/L1.48±0.331.87 ±0.45−0.39 (−0.28–−0.50)
LDLs, mmol/L3.04 ±0.803.05±0.81−0.01 (−0.14–0.11)
Triglycerides, mmol/L0.98±0.410.90 ±0.360.08 (−0.04–0.20)
  • Values are mean±SD. The 29 subjects consumed both diets for 4 weeks in random order. To convert values for total, HDL, and LDL cholesterol to milligrams per deciliter, multiply by 38.67. To convert triglycerides to milligrams per deciliter, multiply by 88.54.
