  1. BMI: body mass index, WC: waist circumference, HOMA2-IR: homeostatic model assessment method insulin resistance, HDL-C: high density lipoprotein cholesterol, SBP: systolic blood pressure, DBP: diastolic blood pressure. Data are the mean ± SEM. * indicates significant differences vs. control group (p < 0.05).
