Note: values are mean ± SD or data are numbers of patients, DM2: type 2 diabetes mellitus patients, HbA1c: glycated hemoglobin A1C, HDL: high-density lipoprotein, and LDL: low-density lipoprotein. Normal range: systolic/diastolic blood pressure < 140/90 mmHg, heart rate (60–100 bpm), HbA1c (4.0–6.0%), cholesterol (<5.2 mmol/L), triglycerides (0.6–1.7 mmol/L), HDL (>1.04 mmol/L), and LDL (<3.12 mmol/L).
