  1. Metabolic syndrome was defined as having three or more of the following conditions: obesity, raised blood pressure, hypertriglyceridemia, low HDL cholesterolemia, and impaired fasting blood glucose. † Insulin resistance was defined as HOMA-IR ≥2.6. The net effect of each interaction was estimated using a general linear model.
