  1. aAdjusted for age, sex, smoking habits, total annual family income, daily caloric intake, and submaximal working capacity. Overweight/obesity was defined as a body mass index ≥25 kg/m2. Impaired glucose tolerance/type 2 diabetes was defined according to the American Diabetes Association and the World Health Organization criteria [26,27]. Abbreviations: OR odds ratio, CI confidence interval.
