Consumption of a high cholesterol diet did not significantly increase blood cholesterol concentration over a 12-week period (Figure 1) Similarly, over the same period, consumption of a low cholesterol diet did not significantly reduce plasma cholesterol concentration.
However after 12 weeks the plasma cholesterol concentration of the high-cholesterol diet group was 50% greater than that of the low-cholesterol group (PThe greatest problem with this study, however, was compliance.
In a future study, it is recommended that more subjects of both sexes be chosen; that meals of known cholesterol content are prepared for the subjects ...........
In a future study, it is recommended that more subjects of both sexes be chosen; that meals of known cholesterol content are prepared for the subjects and that their compliance with the dietary regime be monitored effectively; and that each subject acts as their own control by consuming both diets in a randomised, cross-over sequence.
An effective discussion section tells the reader what your study means and why it is important.
In this article, we will cover some pointers for writing clear/well-organized discussion and conclusion sections and discuss what should NOT be a part of these sections.
Your discussion is, in short, the answer to the question “what do my results mean?
” The discussion section of the manuscript should come after the methods and results section and before the conclusion.
Therefore, put the most important finding front and center.
Imagine that you conduct a study aimed at evaluating the effectiveness of stent placement in patients with partially blocked arteries.
