  1. SD = Standard Deviation; BMI = body mass index; WC = waist circumference; SBP = systolic blood pressure; DBP = diastolic blood pressure; TC = total cholesterol; LDL-C = low-density lipoprotein cholesterol; HDL-C = high-density lipoprotein cholesterol; TG = triglycerides; GLU = glucose.
  2. Data analyzed using ANOVA tests to determine gender differences.
  3. **p < 0.01 indicates differences between males and females.
