From: Associations between maternal lipid profile and pregnancy complications and perinatal outcomes: a population-based study from China

  1. TC total cholesterol, TG triglycerides, LDL-C/HDL-C low-density/high density lipoprotein-cholesterol
  2. Maternal lipid concentrations and increases were presented as median (IQR) mmol/L
  3. *p values were derived from the comparisons among lipid concentrations of the first, second, and third trimesters
  4. **p value were derived from the comparisons between lipid increases from the first to second trimester and the second to third trimester
