  1. 1The following baseline covariates were tested: age, gender (male vs. female), body mass index, waist circumference, dietary pattern (unhealthy, intermediate, Mediterranean), physical activity level (none, light and moderate/heavy), use of diuretics (yes vs. not), use of beta-blockers (yes vs. not).
