Our objective was to assess small, dense LDL particles by using three equations: triglycerides/HDLcholesterol ratio, LDL-cholesterol/LDL-apo B ratio and small, dense particles in mg/dL = 0.580 (non HDL-cholesterol) + 0.407 (direct LDL-cholesterol) – 0.719 (calculated LDL-cholesterol) – 12.05 among normal (n=62) and type 2 diabetes subjects (n=64) and evaluate the correlation between these equations.
