  1. Correlation coefficients were determined using Pearson’s product moment correlation coefficient test.
  2. GDR, glucose disposal rate; HOMA-IR, homeostasis model assessment of insulin resistance; ISI, insulin sensitivity index; AUC, area under the concentration–time curve; hs-CRP, high-sensitive C reactive protein; IL, interleukin; BMI, body mass index; FPG, fasting plasma glucose; LDL-C, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol; TG, triglyceride; HDL-C, high-density lipoprotein cholesterol.
