Figure 2. Developmental Influences. Metabolic processes are programmed during gestation and early childhood and are influenced by disease states and environmental factors such as dietary excess and inactivity. The HTG is associated with atherogenic dyslipidemia consisting of increased non-HDL-C (non-high-density lipoprotein-cholesterol), LDL-P (LDL particle number), apoB (apolipoprotein B), decreased HDL-C (high density lipoprotein cholesterol) and decreased apoA-I.
