Results are expressed as median (25th to 75th percentile values) or mean ± SD, as appropriate. BMI, body mass index; DBP, diastolic blood pressure; HDL-C, high-density lipoprotein cholesterol; HOMA IR, homeostasis model assessment insulin resistance; QUICKI, quantitative insulin sensitivity check index; SBP, systolic blood pressure; SCORE, systematic coronary risk evaluation; TC, total cholesterol.
