  1. FG: Fasting glucose; FINS: fasting insulin; AUCIns: area under the curve (AUC) for insulin; AUCGlu: area under the curve (AUC) for glucose; HOMA-IR: homeostasis model assessment-insulin resistance; TG: triglycerides; TC: total cholesterol; LDL-C: low density lipoprotein-cholesterol
  2. The comparison across timepoints has been assessed using Paired t test and Wilcoxon test
  3. Results are expressed as mean ± SD or median (25th–75th percentile)
