  1. Group A: patients with normal glucose tolerance and 1 h-PG < 155 mg/dL; Group B: patient with normal glucose tolerance and 1 h-PG ≥ 155 mg/dL; Group C: patients with IGT characterized by 1 h-PG < 155 mg/dL; Group D: patients with IGT including 1 h-PG ≥ 155 mg/dL
  2. Two-tailed P-values < 0.05 were considered as statistically significant. Continuos variables were expressed with median and interquartiles intervals
