  1. aContinuous variables were compared using the Student’s t-test and Mann-Whitney’s U test and expressed as means ± standard deviation or median (IQ). Categorical variables were compared using Pearson’s chi-square test and expressed as percentage. bData from baseline. cData from 2003 interviews. BMI: body mass index; GLU: levels of plasma glucose; HDL-c: high-density lipoprotein cholesterol; LDL-c: light-density lipoprotein cholesterol; LPA: leisure physical activity in the previous year; MET: metabolic equivalent; TC: plasma total cholesterol; TG: triglycerides; WC: waist circumference; WHR: waist-to-hip ratio.
