Noun1.VLDL - large lipoproteins rich in triglycerides; VLDLs circulate through the blood giving up their triglycerides to fat and muscle tissue until the VLDL remnants are modified and converted into LDL

The average VLDL was 36.54+- 13.193 mg/dl in cases while in controls was 28.93 +- 9.549 mg/dl, p-value < 0.01.
Estimation of plasma Glucose was by Glucose Oxidase Peroxidase method, Total Cholesterol by CHOD-PAP, Triglycerides by GPO-PAP, HDL by Homogenous Enzymatic Colorimetric test, VLDL Cholesterol & LDL Cholesterol were calculated using the Friedewald Equation, & HbA1c by immunochromatographic method TSH by chemiluminescence/ELISA.
Triglycerides are another type of fat in the blood and are transported primarily on very low-density lipoproteins (VLDL).
In the endogenous pathway, hepatocytes assemble triglycerides onto apo B100, forming VLDL. Similar to CMs, circulating VLDL undergoes lipolysis, resulting in remnants, while generating some HDL.
The relationship between the equivalent values of VLDL-C and TGL levels, in the treatment groups, can be explained because these lipoproteins (VLDL) are the main carriers of TGL in plasma.
TC, LDL, VLDL, and TG levels were significantly lower at 3rd month than the baseline levels (p < 0.001), but HDL levels did not alter significantly at 3rd month (p = 0.708).
The VLDL, LDL and triglycerides levels were also decreased accordingly while a higher ratio of HDL was recorded in rats fed on BGF and SGF compared to the other feeds.
The serum was collected and preserved in -20[degrees]C until measuring levels of total cholesterol (TC), high density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C), Very low density lipoprotein (VLDL), triglycerides (TG), albumin (Alb) also, serum markers of hepatic damage; alkaline phosphatase (ALP), alanine aminotransferase (ALT), aspartate aminotransferase (AST), bilirubin were measured using commercially available kits (ParsAzmun, Tehran, Iran).
