WHR: waist-to-hip ratio; BMI: body mass index; TBF: total body fat; SBP: systolic blood pressure; DBP: diastolic blood pressure; all values were log-transformed before analysis by univariate analysis of variance (General Linear Model), adjusted for covariate ethnicity; values are presented as adjusted mean ± SEM (estimated marginal means ± standard error of the mean); valuesignificant at < 0.05.
