  • Data are shown as mean ± SD.

  • * χ2 test was used.

  • The retrospective power of an independent sample t test was calculated using SPSS general linear model procedures and that of the χ2 test was obtained using G*Power 3.00.10 software (Heinrich Heine, University of Dusseldorf, Germany).

  • MetS(−), without metabolic syndrome; MetS(+), with metabolic syndrome; HDL-C, high-density lipoprotein cholesterol; LDL-C, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol; Log TG, log transformation of triglyceride; AST, aspartate aminotransferase; ALT, alanine aminotransferase.
