  1. MetS: scored out of a maximum of five based on presence of five defined metabolic syndrome features
  2. BMI Body mass index, BP Blood pressure, MetS Metabolic syndrome, HDL High-density lipoprotein, LDL Low-density lipoprotein, HbA1c Haemoglobin A1c, CRP C-reactive protein, ESR Erythrocyte sedimentation rate
  3. *P value is based on an unpaired t-test using log-transformed data
