  1. BMI, body mass index; WC, waist circumference; WHR, waist to hip ratio; WSR, waist to stature ratio; SBP, systolic blood pressure; DBP, diastolic blood pressure.
  2. *P < 0.05, **P < 0.001: comparison between males and females (unpaired student’s t-test for numerical data, χ2 test for categorical data).
