  1. Age (years), body mass index (BMI, kg/m2), fasting plasma ASP levels (nmol/L), fasting plasma triglyceride (TG, mmol/L), lipemic index (TG * ASP), fasting plasma insulin levels (pmol/L) and fasting plasma glucose levels (mmol/L) for Lower ASP and TG (LAT, n = 4) and Higher ASP and TG (HAT n = 7) subjects. Data (means ± SEM) are analysed by t test, where p ns indicates not significant.
