  1. Data is presented as mean ± standard deviation for continuous variables and % (95%CI) for proportions.
  2. 1For the metabolic syndrome definition, the newly harmonized diagnostic criteria was used [4].
  3. 2Medication for hypertension, type 2 diabetes and hypercholesterolemia was considered.
  4. Abbreviations: CI Confidence interval, MetS metabolic syndrome, DBP diastolic blood pressure, SBP systolic blood pressure, HDL high density lipoprotein cholesterol, TG triglycerides.
