  1. FBG = fasting blood glucose; HOMA-IR = Homeostasis Model of Assessment-Insulin Resistance; HDL-C = high-density lipoprotein cholesterol; LDL-C = low-density lipoprotein cholesterol; TC/HDL = total cholesterol/ high-density lipoprotein ratio; SD = standard deviation. Independent sample t-test was used for analysis.
