  1. BMI body mass index, SBP systolic blood pressure, DBP diastolic blood pressure, MAP mean arterial blood pressure, LDL low density lipoprotein, HDL high density lipoprotein, IL-6 interleukin 6, FPG fasting blood glucose, HOMA-IR homeostatic model assessment of insulin resistance. Data are presented as mean (SD). Differences between IS, IR and T2DM were tested by ANOVA. Differences between (IS+IR vs T2DM) were tested by the independent-sample t test or Mann–Whitney U test. A p value significance level of 0.05 was used
