Data is shown as median and range. High fat (n = 5), FO (n = 5) and KO (n = 5). a = HF vs. FO, c = FO vs. KO, *= p <0.05 by Dunn’s test. K-W, p indicates the p-value with the Kruskal-Wallace test. FO; fish oil, KO; Krill oil, VLDL; very low density lipoprotein, LDL; low density lipoprotein, HDL; high density lipoprotein.
