Age, height, weight, and BMI are analyzed by two-sample -test. Sex, P/H, surgery, PD, NPD, drinking, smoking, and coffee are analyzed by Fisher’s exact test. The data of age, height, weight, and BMI in each group are presented by mean ± SD. SD: standard deviation; BMI: body mass index; P/H: physical history; PD: prescription drug; NPD: nonprescription drug; SH: Simhabi; SHK: Simhabikyung.
