  • Regression analysis included parameters, such as age, sex, BMI, diastolic blood pressure, systolic blood pressure, fat mass, percent body fat, waist-to-hip ratio, visceral fat areas, subcutaneous fat area, visceral-to-subcutaneous ratio, fasting plasma glucose, postprandial plasma glucose, free fatty acid, total cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, and triglyceride. Log-transformed insulin sensitivity index was used as a dependent variable.
