HDL2 Associated With Better Heart Health
difference, generally seen in adults, was found to begin at ages 11-15 y. The value of HDL2-C in females increased with age in a stepwise manner, whereas that in
males increased up to ages 6-10 y but tended to decline thereafter. The HDL3-C concentration was higher in the adults than in the children. This micromethod for separating operationally defined HDL subtractions is of value for lipoprotein research in children.
