  1. The observations for blood pressure were reduced due to missing data; waitlisted participants followed up n=27, LTF n=18, active participants LTF n=20. The observations for pathology results were reduced due to missing data; waitlisted participants followed up n=23, LTF n=6, active participants LTF n=15.
  2. * Observation reduced by one. LDL value missing – invalid as triglyceride concentration was > 4.5 mmol/L.
  3. # Observation reduced by one. CRP was > 100 mg/L indicating bacterial infection.
  4. Abbreviations: CI = confidence intervals; BMI = body mass index; Waist = waist circumference; Hip = hip circumference; HbA1C = glycated haemoglobin; LDL = low-density lipoprotein; HDL = high-density lipoprotein; CRP = C-reactive protein.
