According to the results of dyadic comparison tests, the eight-week aerobic exercises has had a positive and significant impact on the rate of total cholesterol, blood sugar, low density lipoprotein and the ratio of high density lipoprotein to low density lipoprotein and it hadn't have a significant effect on the concentration of triglyceride, high density lipoprotein and very low density lipoprotein; but by comparing the empirical and control groups through independent t test, after the empirical group did the exercises, except for low density cholesterol, no significant difference was seen in any of the research variables among these two groups.
And despite the significance difference which has been seen among pre-test and post-test, due to the lack of significant difference between empirical and control groups in this variable after the empirical group did the exercises, it was concluded that aerobic exercises hasn't had a significant impact on the rate of the high density lipoprotein of the working women.
Fasting levels of triglycerides, high density lipoproteins, total cholesterol, and low density lipoproteins were measured in all the subjects.
Similarly significant difference in the mean concentration of high density lipoproteins was also observed in the two groups (p=0.
It also helps to decrease the total cholesterol without affecting the high density lipoproteins ( HDL cholesterol).
Good" cholesterol is the kind found in the high density lipoproteins (HDL) in your blood.
Patients treated with Acapodene(R) had statistically significantly lower levels of total cholesterol, Low Density Lipoproteins (LDL), and triglycerides, a reduction in the ratio of total cholesterol to High Density Lipoproteins (HDL), and higher HDL, when compared to patients on placebo.
