Data are means ± SD. One-way ANOVA test and Tukey post hoc test of normal range versus preobesity and obesity, and preobesity versus obesity, *all measurements were different ( < 0.05), +exception where only normal range versus obesity was different. &No signifies differences were found. BMI: body mass index; WHR: waist-hip ratio; WthR: waist height ratio; HOMA-IR: homeostasis model assessment-insulin resistance; HDLc, LDLc, and VLDLc: high, low, and very low density lipoprotein cholesterol, respectively.
