indicates the number of subjects (%), and indicates the value of mean ± SD. The value of categorized variables was calculated by chi-squared test or Fisher’s test, and continuous variables were analyzed by a student’s -test (a) or Mann-Whitney test (b) after a normality test and compared with the non-DP group. DP: Dampness-phlegm, BMI: body mass index, TIA: transient ischemic attack, GOT: glutamic oxaloacetic transaminase, GPT: glutamic pyruvate transaminase.
