EPA, DHA, EPA+DHA, EPA:AA, and n-3:n-6 are positively associated with total cholesterol (p=0.0001);

EPA (p=0.005), DHA (p=0.0003), EPA+DHA (p=0.0007), EPA:AA (p=0.002), and n-3:n-6 (p=0.003) are positively associated with LDL;

EPA (p=p=0.0001), DHA (p=0.004), EPA+DHA (p=0.0001), EPA:AA (p=0.0001), and n-3:n-6 (p=0.0001) are positively associated with HDL;

EPA (p=0.04) and EPA:AA (p=0.05) are negatively associated with total cholesterol:HDL;

EPA (p=0.0001), EPA+DHA (p=0.0003), EPA:AA (p=0.0002), and n-3:n-6 (p=0.001) are negatively associated with triacylglycerols; and

EPA (p=0.02), DHA (p=0.01), EPA+DHA (p=0.008), EPA:AA (p=0.02), and n-3:n-6 (p=0.008) are positively associated with glucose.
