  1. Data are presented as means ± SD. Univariate analyses were calculated by t-test. BMI, body mass index; WC, waist circumference; SBP, systolic blood pressure; DBP, diastolic blood pressure; FPG, Fasting plasma glucose level; TC, total cholesterol level; TG, triglyceride level; LDL-C, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol level; HDL-C, high-density lipoprotein cholesterol level.
