  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. Bolded p-values indicate statistically significant correlations (p < 0.05).
