  1. There were no significant differences in gender and age between healthy controls and TB cases with PYD, HFYD and DQY syndromes. However, the cholesterol levels of TB patients, such as TC, HDL, LDL, and TG, were significantly different from those of healthy controls
  2. a P-value between healthy controls and TB cases with PYD, HFYD and DQY syndromes for one-way ANOVA followed by Tukey’s post-hoc test
  3. b P-value between healthy controls and TB cases with PYD, HFYD and DQY syndromes for the χ2 test
  4. c P-value between HFYD cases and other TB patients for the unpaired t-test
  5. N number of subjects, ND not determined. *P < 0.05. **P < 0.01. *** P < 0.001
