  1. HDL, high-density lipoprotein; HOMA-IR, homeostatic model assessment for insulin resistance; IL, interleukin; L:A ratio, leptin:adiponectin ratio; MetSyn, metabolic syndrome; SBP, systolic blood pressure; TNFα, tumor necrosis factor alpha. *P <0.05. P <0.05 after adjustment for conventional cardiovascular risk factors including age, sex, smoking, systolic blood pressure, waist circumference, glucose, triglycerides, HDL cholesterol, and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol.
