value < 0.05 by Spearman’s partial correlation adjusted for age. GGT, ALT, AST, Fasting insulin, HOMA-IR, and CRP were log-transformed.
BMI: body mass index; BF%, body fat percent; CRP: C-reactive protein; HDL: high density lipoprotein; AST: aspartate transaminase; ALT: alanine transaminase; GGT: gamma-glutamyltransferase; HOMA-IR: homeostasis model assessment of insulin resistance.
