  1. *significant difference of <0.001 between favorable and adverse MR cluster, using t-test (for continuous variables with normal distribution, and Mann-Whitney rank-sum test for continuous variables with non-normal distribution‡. WC is waist circumference, Trigs is serum triglycerides, SBP is systolic blood pressure, DBP is diastolic blood pressure, HDL is high density lipoprotein cholesterol, FPG is fasting plasma glucose.
