Note: Data shown as mean SD. Baseline = , 3-month assessment = , and 6-month assessment = . Body mass index is abbreviated as BMI, high-density lipoprotein as HDL, and low-density lipoprotein as LDL. A1c is the measure of glycated hemoglobin. Values are expressed as mean SD. Significance in change within group during the specified time period is tested by paired -test and denoted by , < 0.01, and < 0.001.
