  1. Data are presented as mean ± SD (minimum value – maximum value). *Not normally distributed variables are described as median (minimum value – maximum value). SAD: sagittal abdominal diameter; BMI: body mass index; WC: waist circumference; WHR: waist-to-hip ratio; BP: blood pressure; HOMA-IR: homeostasis model assessment of insulin resistance; HDL: high-density lipoprotein cholesterol; LDL: low-density lipoprotein cholesterol; Apo: serum apolipoproteins; CRP: C-reactive protein.
